    A culture of inclusive higher education is everyone’s responsibility (NCSEHE)

    An institution-wide approach, including staff and students, could reduce the structural barriers to higher education retention and success for students from disadvantaged backgrounds, according to this report.
    The research, led by Dr Ryan Naylor from La Trobe University and funded by the NCSEHE, recommended institutions prioritise a culture of equal opportunities and experiences, rather than relying on students to adapt to existing structures.

    Access, quality and wellbeing in engineering WIL placements: Implications for equity and diversity

    This study funded by the National Centre for Student Equity in Higher Education (NCSEHE) examines student engineers’ experiences in Work Integrated Learning (WIL) placements. The study provides insights into how to guide improvements in engineering WIL practice, particularly in relation to access, quality and wellbeing for students in equity groups.(Natalie Lloyd (University of Technology Sydney), Megan Paull (Murdoch University), Teena Clerke (University of Technology Sydney) and Sally Male (The University of Western Australia - December 2019)

    Beyond graduation: Long-term socioeconomic outcomes amongst equity students (NCSEHE)

    This report aimed to address significant gaps in scientific knowledge about the trajectories of post-graduation outcomes of students from equity groups by examining the following research questions: Do equity graduates reap the benefits of university education to the same extent as non-equity graduates over the short and long run?;  What are the differences in outcomes between graduates from different equity groups?; What are the specific outcome domains (e.g. labour market, social capital, wellbeing) where equity group graduates perform particularly well or particularly poorly? The research found that higher education could overcome social inequity in time, but outcomes for Indigenous graduates and those with disabilities often lagged.   (Funded by the NCSEHE. Wojtek Tomaszewski, Francisco Perales, Ning Xiang and Matthias Kubler - The University of Queensland)

    NCSEHE: Student equity data

    NCSEHE National Student Equity Data webpage allows users to download and graph data on undergraduate equity student participation and performance in Australia, as sourced from the Australian Government’s Higher Education Student Data Collection.

Reporting occurs across major equity groups and seven indicators: Access (commencing enrolments and % share); Participation (enrolments and % share); Attrition (% share); Success (% share); and Attainment (% share). Users will be able to quickly source equity participation data and to view trends over recent years for individual institutions, while also comparing trends in key indicators across universities.

    National Guidelines for Improving Student Outcomes in Online Learning (NCSEHE)

    The research outlined in this report was made possible by an Equity Fellowship, offered for 2016 through the National Centre for Student Equity in Higher Education with funding from the Australian Government Department of Education and Training (DET). Through qualitative interviews with 151 members of academic and professional staff across 16 higher education institutions – 15 in Australia plus the Open University (OU) United Kingdom (UK) – it sought the combined wisdom of practitioners in online learning to inform the development of National Guidelines to Improve Student Outcomes in Online Learning. From analysis of the interview data and other related published research, seven key findings emerged. (2017. Dr Cathy Stone)
