Tuesday, 12 May 2015

The purpose of the visit was to learn more about the work of the Wisconsin Equity and Inclusion (WEI) Lab and the Wisconsin HOPE Lab and to explore possible research collaborations.

The WeiLab has a particular focus on addressing the issue of the digital divide while the HOPE Lab has a particular focus on the affordability of post-secondary
education.

As those who attended Professor Radoll's NeW Professor Talk will know issues of the digital divide are of particular interest to Professor Radoll. This area is one area of potential collaboration that the CEEHE will continue to explore with the WeiLab.

One of the striking features of both research centres is the level of philanthropic support for their research agendas.

Professor Whitty, Professor Radoll and Ms Munn also had the opportunity to meet with Professor Michael Apple.
