A comparative evaluation of the efficacy of the equity strategies employed by Australian universities

The project is being led by Central Queensland University in partnership with Federation University Australia, University of the Sunshine Coast, University of Newcastle, La Trobe University and James Cook University.

It will build the evidence concerning the efficacy of the equity strategies employed by Australian universities which are aimed at improving opportunities and the success in higher education by people from low socio-economic status (SES) backgrounds, as well as develop a best-practice guide for other higher education institutions.

Professor Geoff Whitty and Dr Anna Bennett are on the University of Newcastle project team.
