You are invited to participate in a research study funded by the National Centre for Student Equity in Higher Education (NCSEHE), titled University responses to enhancing equity in the post-Covid landscape.

We are conducting a project to examine the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, and its consequences on the Australian higher education sector, regarding growing domestic student enrolments, particularly those of equity cohorts.

The research study is looking recruit staff employed in any of the following roles:

  • Heads/managers of Student Equity units making decisions relating to:
    • Widening Participation.
    • Admissions pathways relevant to targeted equity groups
    • Student experience as part of targeted initiatives for equity groups
  • Staff implementing and/or guiding relevant policy for the admissions and support of students in equity groups
  • Must have been in their role for at least 12 months.

Exclusion criteria for participants for surveys: Colleagues who are not involved in the development and/or implementation of admissions/ equity policies.

Participants will be asked to complete one electronic survey that will take approximately 25 minutes if they agree to participate.
