This is the first of three policy discussions open to the public, hosted by the University of Melbourne’s Centre for the Study of Higher Education (Melbourne CSHE) during the first 100 days of the new government. The aim is to generate new ideas drawing on the latest evidence, challenge conventional thinking and offer practical steps that ministers can take in the next few years towards a longer term, comprehensive vision for post-secondary education.
The first of these will be on The purpose of higher education and how its funding can be sustainable, and will feature short contributions from an expert panel:
- Prof Margaret Gardner, Vice Chancellor, Monash University
- Andrew Norton, Higher Education Program Director, Grattan Institute
- Prof Beth Webster, Pro Vice-Chancellor (Research Impact and Policy), Swinburne University
- Prof William Locke, Director, Melbourne Centre for the Study of Higher Education
This event will be facilitated by Maxine McKew, Vice Chancellor’s Fellow, The University of Melbourne.
The second policy discussion will be on Access to what?, on equity and integrating post-secondary education, on Tuesday 16 July.
The final event will ask Has internationalisation gone too far?, on Wednesday 7 August.
