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.

Supporting careers of LGBTQIA+ students in Australian universities
This report found, despite large numbers of LGBTQIA+ students in higher education in Australia, this cohort has been historically excluded from existing defined equity cohorts. Currently, little is known about how LGBTQIA+ individuals in universities are being supported to achieve better career outcomes.
Australian universities and educational equity for student veterans
This report describes how student veterans are understood by universities in Australia, and how they are governed and serviced as a group.
Being First in Family: motivations and metaphors
Building on previous research, we conducted semi-structured interviews with 18 First in Family (FiF) university students from a range of disciplines across three South Australian institutions. In exploring the data, we have gained insight into students’ day-to-day experience of attending university and have gained information about their motivations and their struggles.
Educational Outcomes of Young Indigenous Australians
By tracking two cohorts from the Longitudinal Survey of Australian Youth (LSAY) the report addresses: the size of the gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous in education performance; whether there has been any improvement in academic performance at age 15; and the extent to which educational outcomes for Indigenous students are affected by the final years of schooling.
Exploring the Experience of Being First in Family at University
This collaborative research project was conducted by academics across the three major universities in South Australia, i.e. University of South Australia, Flinders University and the University of Adelaide. The project was funded by the National Centre for Student Equity in Higher Education (NCSEHE) at Curtin University and explores the experiences of first in family students in higher education.
