Update on the Centre of Excellence for Equity in Higher Education
Equity of access to higher education is a fundamental part of the University of Newcastle's "DNA". This is reflected in our institutional values and demonstrated in our successful history of supporting students from a range of backgrounds to achieve a university education.
A clear aspiration of the NeW Directions Education Plan is the creation of a Centre of Excellence for Equity in Higher Education. The Centre, together with The Wollotuka Institute, will further develop the reputation of the University as a global leader in the evidence-based development of pathways to enhance access to university and academic success for students from diverse backgrounds. By building on our success as a leader in enabling education and equitable access to higher education, the Centre will serve as a national and international hub for collaborative action-oriented research, strengthening practice in higher education and building partnerships for success.
Please join the Deputy Vice Chancellor (Academic) Professor Andrew Parfitt as he provides an update on the development of the Centre of Excellence for Equity in Higher Education and how you can be involved in the important work of the Centre in 2014.
