A friend for the Tehan bill 

The Regional Universities Network is the best friend the government has got for its plan to change funding for undergraduate places

If adopted the new model “will have a positive impact in the regions through funding for more places and regional research, and … help grow regional economies,” RUN chair Helen Bartlett (Uni Sunshine Coast ) says.

Regional universities do best of all HE lobbies from the bill, even having amendments adopted, with the help of regional education minister and Nationals MP Andrew Gee, (CMM August 26).

Professor Bartlett also announces a new paper, demonstrating the good RUN does for its members’ communities and how more funding will make everything even better.
