Submission – La Trobe University Group

Home  →  Submissions Library  → Submission – La Trobe University Group


This submission was made by a group of 57 staff and students from La Trobe University.

The submission proposes that La Trobe University be renamed due to Charles La Trobe’s role in Victoria’s colonisation, and that doing this would align with comments made by Yoorrook’s Chair, Professor Eleanor Bourke and Premier Jacinta Allan in terms of the importance of understanding history from a First Nations perspective.
