As we approach the end of 2018 we farewell Aunty Joan Tranter. Aunty Joan has been the inaugural Elder in Residence for Jumbunna Institute for Indigenous Education and Research at UTS for the last six years, and previously a part of the equity team as an Indigenous Employment Manager. She has been a part of the UTS family for the past twenty years. We wish her well with her retirement. We did a short documentary on her journey here at UTS.
Aunty Joan’s family, her co workers, long time friend Aunty Jean South from UWS and students who have received her support for many years came to celebrate her achievements.
For those of you who where unable to be there, the great news is that Aunty Joan has not left the building. She will be returning to to participate in an Elders group here on campus.
