Critical Interventions Framework II

The Critical Interventions Framework II (CIF II) project, awarded a $205,262 HEPP National Priority Pool grant, will extend the Critical Interventions Framework for Advancing Equity in Australian Higher Education (Naylor, Baik & James, 2013). The project team brings significant national and international experience in equity, educational disadvantage and educational policy, including direct international engagement in widening participation agendas. Led by the University of Newcastle, the project team also combines senior academics from University of Melbourne and La Trobe University.

The resulting CIF II will provide a comprehensive, adaptable framework for use by all Australian higher education providers to guide their implementation of equity interventions.

The project is led by University of Newcastle senior academics Dr Anna Bennett, Professor Jenny Gore, Professor Geoff Whitty, Professor Max Smith and Belinda Munn.
