    Book: Student Equity in Australian Higher Education. Twenty-five years of A Fair Chance for All.

    This book examines twenty-five years of the Australian framework for student equity in higher education, A Fair Chance for All. Divided into two sections, the book reflects on the legacy of equity policy in higher education, the effectiveness of current approaches, and the likely challenges facing future policymakers. The first section explores the creation of the framework, including the major elements of the policy, the political context of its development, and how it compares with international models developed during the same period. The performance of the six student equity groups identified within the framework is also examined. The second section of the book considers future trends and challenges. The Australian university sector has undergone seismic change in the past twenty-five years and faces further changes of equal magnitude. The twenty-fifth anniversary of A Fair Chance for All comes as Australian higher education is poised for another wave of transformation, with rising expansion, competition, and stratification. While the emerging landscape is new, the questions have changed little since A Fair Chance for All was first conceived: How should we define student equity, and what policies are likely to promote it?

    NCSEHE: Equity Performance and Accountability

    New research by NCSEHE 2017 Equity Fellow Matt Brett (La Trobe University) has identified opportunities for recalibrating and strengthening evaluation at a system level, through a process-driven approach.

    The Fellowship research sought to better understand how accountability for performance against equity policy goals and funding operates across the Australian higher education system. This entailed consideration of: how equity goals are defined; who defines equity goals; how equity goals are resourced; how performance against equity goals is monitored and reviewed; and what consequences arise from a level of equity performance.

    The Best Chance for All: Student equity 2030

    The Best Chance for All: Student equity 2030 — A long-term strategic vision for student equity in higher education

    In June 2018, the NCSEHE set out to develop a long-term strategic vision for student equity in Australian higher education through a national collaborative process under the banner of Student Equity 2030. The core outcome of this process is The Best Chance for All, a proposed national policy statement for student equity in Australian tertiary education.

    The Best Chance for All represents the synthesis of feedback from stakeholders closest to student equity policy, research and practice obtained through a comprehensive consultation process conducted between June and November 2018. (Nadine Zacharias, Matthew Brett. NCSEHE March 2019)
