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.

It is with great pleasure this week that we launch our second case study publication, Partnerships in Higher Education. This publication is a follow-up to last year’s Access and Participation in Higher Education: Outreach | Access | Support, and showcases some of the wonderful partnership work taking place across Australia as a result of the Australian Government Department of Education’s Higher Education Participation and Partnership Programme.

Partnerships in Higher Education presents 31 examples of “partnership working” and covers each of Australia’s 37 public universities. Each case study details the partnership’s activities, outcomes, how the various partnerships work, and plans for the future. Each individual case study will soon be featured here on the NCSEHE website.

NCSEHE Director, Professor Sue Trinidad, and QUT Equity Director, Mary Kelly, state in the preface:

“Australian universities have always undertaken partnership activities, but the incentives available under Higher Education Participation and Partnerships Programme funding since 2010 have seen the emergence of larger-scale, more collaborative partnerships in the area of widening participation. The 31 case studies in this publication illustrate the range and richness of this work.”

Hard copies of this latest publication are available on request. Alternatively, you can download a soft copy version here: Partnerships in Higher Education (8.12Mb)
