Australia-wide mentorship programs structured for equity students reported exceptional performance against evidence-based benchmarks. All of the surveyed equity group programs demonstrated good or exemplary practice. Seven recommendations were made for university practice in relation to mentoring programs and further research, including an examination of the specific support for disadvantaged students during and nearing course completion (May, 2017. Susan Beltman, Shamim Samani and Kate Ala’i Curtin University).
An Australian-first research project to evaluate and manualise a peer mentoring program, which aims to support young adults on the spectrum at university, is now complete. The program, developed at Curtin University, is available to all Australian universities.
