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.

Event information

The National Centre for Student Equity in Higher Education (NCSEHE) has released the third in a series of case study publications, showcasing 35 Australia-wide Higher Education Participation and Partnerships Program (HEPPP) funded university initiatives, Higher Education Participation and Partnerships Program: Seven Years On.

Following on from Access and Participation in Higher Education: Outreach–Access–Support (2013) and Partnerships in Higher Education (2014), this publication tracks the diverse activities, partnerships, positive outcomes, and sustainable impacts of HEPPP programs over time.

NCSEHE Director Professor Sue Trinidad and Senior Research Fellow Dr Nadine Zacharias note in their Preface:

“This latest review of initiatives to support widening access and participation is a timely contribution to further developing a progressive and equitable higher education system in Australia.

The HEPPP funded programs showcased in this publication illustrate the diversity of institutional responses to HEPPP as well as some clear themes that have been consistent over time. They are a celebration of what has been achieved and a reminder of what remains to be done.”

The digital version is available here. Hard copies are available on request by contacting the NCSEHE.
