The Australian Centre for Student Equity and Success acknowledges Indigenous peoples as the Traditional Owners of the lands on which our campuses are situated. With a history spanning 60,000 years as the original educators, Indigenous peoples hold a unique place in Australia. We recognise the importance of their knowledge and culture, and reflect the principles of participation, equity, and cultural respect in our work. We pay our respects to Elders past, present, and future, and consider it an honour to learn from our Indigenous colleagues, partners, and friends.

The Centre of Excellence for Equity in Higher Education (CEEHE) at the University of Newcastle is pleased to open applications for the 2019 Writing Program for Equity & Widening Participation Practitioners.

The University of Newcastle, in conjunction with Sheffield Hallam University, UK and the Office for Fair Access, UK, have developed a writing program to enhance the relationship between equity and widening participation practitioners and academics.

The aim of the program is to:

  • enhance the relationship between widening participation practitioners and academics
  • raise the profile of robust research and evaluation of widening participation activity nationally and internationally
  • support widening participation practitioners to present research and evaluations of their practice in refereed academic journals, enabling practitioners and academics to share their work with broader audiences.

In 2019 there are up to 14 places available in the Australian program.

Equity Practitioners in Higher Education Australasia (EPHEA) and the National Association of Enabling Educators of Australia (NAEEA) are both generously providing support in the way of travel grants to facilitate the participation of members who cannot access financial support from their institution to participate in the Writing Program.

Applications for the 2019 program close 5 pm Friday 22 February.
