Administrative history

Abschol was the Aboriginal Affairs Department of the National Union of Australian University Students. Its activities became wider than its stated objectives especially when the Australian Government began a secondary school scholarships scheme. The national Australian Union of Students (the continuation of N.U.A.U.S.) dropped the name ABSCHOL in favour of "Race Relations Department".

In 1977 the name of Abschol (University of Queensland) was Abschol – University of Queensland Race Relations Office but it was known as Abschol. Its aims were to promote and aid higher education, including secondary, technical and tertiary education, for Aborigines; to inform university students and the community about the problems faced by Aborigines in furthering their education; to give scholarships to eligible students. Membership was open to all Australian Indigenous people, and to staff and students at the University of Queensland. The University of Queensland group retained the name ABSCHOL. Its activities emphasized close links with the Brisbane black community. It became inoperative in the late seventies. Since 1981 attempts have been made to revive it. Publicists for Abschol (University of Queensland) included: Budger Davidson, Jenny McLean, Denis Walker.
