James Cook University

One of the world's leading institutions focusing on the tropics, Australia's James Cook University enables students from Australia and overseas to study in a diverse physical environment unparalleled by any university in the world.

The University conducts nationally significant and internationally recognised research in areas such as marine sciences, biodiversity, tropical ecology and environments, global warming, tourism, and tropical medicine and public health care in under-served populations – specifically focused on the welfare of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

James Cook University recognises its special obligation to be relevant in its own region and has become significant to the economy and social fabric of northern Queensland. It is dedicated to ensuring that its teaching, learning and research are not only of high quality, but also deliver practical benefits to the peoples and industries of the region. James Cook University welcomes engagement with the Lowitja Institute as the partnership matches its strategic and regional focus.
