La Trobe University acknowledges that our campuses are located on the lands of many Traditional Custodians in Victoria and New South Wales. We recognise their ongoing connection to the land and value their unique contribution to the University and wider Australian society. La Trobe University is committed to providing opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, both as individuals and communities, through teaching and learning, research and community partnerships across all our campuses. The wedge-tailed eagle (Aquila audax) is one of the world’s largest, and the Wurundjeri people – Traditional Owners of the land where our Melbourne campuses are located – know the wedge-tailed eagle as Bunjil, the creator spirit of the Kulin Nations. There is a special synergy between Bunjil and the La Trobe University logo of an eagle. The symbolism and significance for both La Trobe and for Aboriginal people challenges us all to gamagoen yarrbat – to soar.
