Attaining student equity through the Universities Accord

Mon 27 Mar 2023 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm AEDT

Aerial UTS Function Centre Building 10, Level 7/235 Jones St, Ultimo NSW AND Online

Event details

Australia needs a higher education system that offers the same opportunities regardless of someone’s location, financial circumstances, or cultural background. Governments, institutions, and employers must work together to achieve this.

The recent Australian Universities Accord discussion paper emphasises the need for targets beyond overall participation in higher education to drive better long-term outcomes for students. This includes exploring the student lifecycle to improve access, participation, success completion, and graduate outcomes.

This event is an opportunity for student equity practitioners to come together to reflect on the questions posed in the paper and develop a consolidated response to ensure we achieve meaningful progress in student equity.
