The University of Tasmania and the Tasmanian Aboriginal Community have recognised that at present there exist a number of inequities for Aboriginal people in the higher education system. In an attempt to address these problems, Riawunna, Center for Aboriginal Education, was established. This unit is designed exclusively for Aboriginal students, introducing them to a range of cultural, historical and contemporary issues facing the Palawa community. It informs them of the major government policies which affect them and provides them with a sound knowledge of Palawa organisations and services.
