Equity @ ACU Symposium

Equity @ ACU Week is fast approaching. Register to attend the free two-day Equity @ ACU Symposium 25-26 September, that will explore equity and inclusion within higher education, our work and our practice.

At ACU, equity, inclusion and social justice is at the core of our mission, what we do and therefore everyone's business. You are invited to join the discussion around one of the most pressing issues in Australian education.

The recent Australian Universities Accord Interim Report stated the improvement of access and equity was a matter of urgency.

“Tackling this participation problem will require all institutions to actively support students from all backgrounds to enrol and succeed. Every part of the higher education system must set out to achieve greater equity.” 19 July 2023

Join the Equity @ ACU Symposium as Vice-Chancellor and President Professor Zlatko Skrbis launches ACU's Widening Participation Plan, as well as the opportunity to engage with leaders and experts from the pre-tertiary and higher education sectors.
