Practical advice for equity student supporters

There are four new short guides on who they are and what they need

They are by Nicole Crawford, senior research fellow at the Curtin U based National Centre for Student Equity in Higher Education and cover identity and needs of equity groups and how to help them.

They appear as centre staff face an uncertain future. There’s $20m in new Commonwealth funding but Education Minister Jason Clare says that while NCSEHE “does good research” he wants, “to see real results. That means trialling, evaluating, implementing and monitoring the sorts of things that will really shift the dial.”

Curtin U states that while nothing is finalised, “we envisage the new centre to be quite different albeit with some continuity with the past.” (CMM July 11).

Friends of the NCSEHE as is are vocal in social media about the quality and relevance of work done there
