Our Projects

Widening participation by low socio-economic status, indigenous and students with a disability

A Go8 university

The project analysed and evaluated current activities and plans for widening participation of equity groups, and provided recommendations about future models for widening participation. The project:

  • benchmarked the University’s priorities and models against other universities including domestic and international universities that demonstrate best practice in these areas
  • assessed the opportunities for young people from a wide range of backgrounds and contexts to study at the University
  • evaluated whether the University’s current activities and approaches are providing value for money
  • provided advice on the aspirations the University might have, and options for the University for structures, funding and engagement models that reflect best practice across the sector in widening participation
  • developed specific recommendations on how these arrangements might be implemented.
