Award for Excellence and Innovation in Indigenous Education

School of Health Sciences lecturer Ms Shawana Andrews has won the Award for Excellence and Innovation in Indigenous Education in 2017.

Each year the University celebrates the work of staff at the university through the Melbourne Excellence Awards.
