UC appoints Ngunnawal Centre director

Craig Dukes has been appointed director of the Ngunnawal Centre, the University of Canberra’s support service for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students.
Dukes is the inaugural CEO of Indigenous Allied Health Australia (IAHA), an organisation that represents Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander allied health professionals and students.
UC alumnus Dukes says he is very excited to be appointed to the position.
“I have enjoyed my four years as CEO of Indigenous Allied Health Australia and am looking forward to taking up a new and exciting challenge,” he says.
Duke graduated from UC in 1990 with a bachelor of applied science in the conservation of cultural materials. He says he used the services of the Ngunnawal Centre at the time, and that returning to the university for this role “was part of the attraction”.
Dukes was previously the director of the Allied Health Workforce Section of the Department of Health and Ageing. He has also represented IAHA on several advisory groups of Health Workforce Australia, including being the joint chair of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Workforce Advisory Committee.
