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.

Re-envisioning the student experience for the future: new imperatives and opportunities for Australian higher education

This Symposium looks to the future of Australian higher education and the key changes needed to improve the student experience. It asks how we preserve it during periods of disruption like we have experienced in the Covid-19 pandemic, and how we enrich it through better connections with the wider world. Join the Melbourne Centre for the Study of Higher Education (MSHE) for a conversation with thought-leaders, higher education researchers, educators, practitioners and community members to discuss new imperatives for the higher education sector:

  • What do students need to succeed and thrive at university?
  • What is the role of place and community for universities in the future?
  • How can we re-imagine internationalisation for a sustainable future?
  • What do we need to future-proof a positive student experience during times of major disruption?

Delegates will have the opportunity to submit questions for our featured speakers and expert panels before the event.

This symposium will be a hybrid event with the in-person gathering held at the University of Melbourne, Parkville.
