Acknowledgement of Country
Griffith University acknowledges Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people as this country’s First Nations
and Traditional Custodians of the land.

We honour the Ancestors and Elders within the sacred grounds on which our campuses are located: at South Bank,
Mt Gravatt and Nathan, the Turrbal, Yugarabul, Yuggera, and Jagera peoples; at Logan, the Yuggera, Yugarabul,
Jagera and Yugambeh peoples; and at the Gold Coast, the Yugambeh/Kombumerri peoples.

We pay respect to these nations, their languages, and the kinship groups they represent, past and present,
and we extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
