Director’s Welcome

Welcome to the National Centre for Student Equity in Higher Education website

Based at Curtin University since 2013, the NCSEHE provides national leadership in student equity in higher education, connecting research, policy and practice to improve higher education participation and success for marginalised and disadvantaged people.

The NCSEHE plays a central role in producing, collating and disseminating research and recommendations to stakeholders — from policymakers and practitioners, to students and the general public.

The Centre’s diverse activities reflect its key objectives to strengthen the evidence base by informing research directions; collaborate with stakeholders to be at the centre of public policy dialogue; and promote innovation in the equity sector.

The growing reputation and influence of the Centre has contributed to student equity becoming firmly incorporated into higher education policy. An emphasis on the student voice and the communication of equity initiatives has contextualised our research and data analysis, and we look forward to continuing this work.

Kind regards,

Professor Sue Trinidad
Director
