Dr Bob Morgan is a Gamilaroi man and a highly respected Aboriginal educator/researcher who has worked extensively throughout Australia and internationally in the field of Aboriginal knowledge and learning for over 30 years. Bob was previously the Executive Director of Tranby Aboriginal College, and is now a Conjoint Professor of Practice in Indigenous Education and Research at the University of Newcastle.
Advocating that Indigenous education must reflect community, he has called for a curriculum that celebrates and reflects Aboriginal culture and knowledge systems. Bob has also been active in many community-based organisations concerned with anti-discrimination and sport. As one of the original committee members of the Koori United football team, he helped initiate the enormously successful NSW Annual Aboriginal Rugby League Knockout which has now grown to a carnival in which more than sixty teams compete.
