TEQSA Guidance Note: Diversity and Equity
The TEQSA Guidance Note: Diversity and Equity has identified that any provider that admits students without considering how all students will have equivalent opportunities for academic success and an appropriate learning environment is likely to face multiple difficulties in meeting the Higher Education Standards (HES) Framework. They have identified the terms 'diversity' and 'equity' within the HES Framework and have developed guidance notes to assist Higher Education providers in insuring equivalent opportunities for student academic success.
TEQSA publishes guidance notes, to provide greater clarity for providers in the interpretation and application of selected standards. Guidance notes draw on our regulatory experience and knowledge of experts in the higher education sector. The guidance notes are not instructional or ‘how to’ documents for compliance with the new HES Framework.
