A conversation between research and practice – equity in higher education

Event Details
Online Webinar (AEST)
8 September 2022

In this online workshop, The Centre of Excellence for Equity in Higher Education (CEEHE) explore ways that insights from social science research contribute to meaningful community engagement to support new approaches to equity and social justice in higher education.

Australian higher education equity policy has continued to struggle to meet its objectives in creating access to higher education for under-represented people and communities. To understand why these disparities persist, the CEEHE at the University of Newcastle works collaboratively with participants, communities and external agencies to understand who is missing from higher education, why, and what can change to make universities more accessible and relevant. They do this through research-informed practice and practice-informed research – where researchers and practitioners work closely together – to understand social and cultural inequities and injustices that significantly affect educational access, experiences and participation.

In this workshop, they bring together speakers across CEEHE programs that work with people from an Out Of Home Care Background, people with a refugee background and people who are experiencing or have experienced gender-based violence.
