Open Access

Also available as an ebook from your favourite retailer.

Established in 1964, the Centre for Research into Aboriginal Affairs propelled Monash University into a position of academic leadership in the ongoing struggle for justice for Aboriginal people. Leading the way in research into the causes of Aboriginal disadvantage and the teaching of Aboriginal Studies, Monash has also been at the forefront of moves to widen educational and employment opportunities for Indigenous people. Focusing on the leaders who steered Monash’s Indigenous programs over half-a-century, Making a Difference tells the story of visionary and committed individuals, some newcomers to Australia, some Australian-born, some Indigenous, who sought to improve Aboriginal peoples’ lives in the face of enormous obstacles.
