First Peoples Health Unit
The story of the graphicThere is a story represented and reflected in the FPHU graphic. It incorporates both traditional and contemporary artwork, symbolising the fusion of the Indigenous and western ways of knowing, being and doing. In Griffith University colours, it signifies the cyclical and holistic nature of First Peoples’ understandings of health, engagement, learning and teaching and research. These are depicted as follows
- Knowledge from the Ancestors is represented in the logo by the surrounding black circle protecting and guiding all that’s within.
- Learning and teaching is represented by the white concentric dots connecting the 8 health schools to the graduation cap circle representing First Peoples student success.
- Research is represented by the colour red in the logo.
