Charles Darwin University (CDU) welcomed Australia’s inaugural Ambassador for First Nations People for his first visit to the University this week.

Ambassador Justin Mohamed visited CDU on Wednesday to meet with representatives to connect, share and exchange information around the University’s First Nations strategic direction.

The Ambassador met with CDU Vice-Chancellor Professor Scott Bowman, CDU Deputy Vice-Chancellor First Nations Leadership and Engagement Professor Reuben Bolt and Pro-Vice Chancellor Faculty of Arts and Society Professor Ruth Wallace and Director of Government Relations, Bree Willsmore.

As part of his visit, Ambassador Mohamed toured CDU’s First Nations precinct. A group of students had the opportunity to connect and share their experiences and journeys with the Ambassador during his visit.

Ambassador Mohamed welcomed the opportunity to engage with students and speak about his role as Australia’s inaugural Ambassador for First Nations People.

“Supporting the meaningful economic development and participation of First Nations peoples in the global system is one very important facet of my role as Ambassador for First Nations People,” Ambassador Mohamed said.

CDU Deputy Vice-Chancellor Professor Reuben Bolt said it was a privilege to host the Ambassador at the University.

“Charles Darwin University is committed to becoming Australia’s most connected university and visits such as Ambassador Mohamed’s are key to this,” Professor Bolt said.

“We welcome Ambassador Mohamed to discuss the University’s strategic direction to become Australia’s most recognised for First Nations training, education, and research and to meet our wonderful students.

“Our students are the next generation of leaders and by sharing their stories and knowledge with the Ambassador, together we can craft a bright and prosperous future.”
