Equity Database Launch @ UNSW Sydney

Keynote delivered by Associate Professor Andrew Harvey (LaTrobe University)

Join us for the launch of the Equity in Higher Education Literature Database.

This database has been developed from Dr Sally Baker’s open access annotated bibliography (OAAB) series. OAABs offer a snapshot of some of the available literature on a particular topic. The literature is curated by a collective of scholars who share an interest in equity in education. These resources are intended to be shared with the international community of researchers, students, educators and practitioners. The literature has been organised thematically according to patterns that have emerged from a deep and sustained engagement with the various fields.

Dr Andrew Harvey, Director of the Centre for Higher Education Equity and Diversity Research at La Trobe University together with UNSW Pro Vice Chancellor (Equity, Diversity and Inclusion) Professor Eileen Baldry, will officially launch the database. Professor Eileen Baldry will provide opening remarks and Dr Harvey will deliver a brief keynote on the history, present and future of equity in higher education. The formalities will be followed by a demonstration of the database and Q&A session. 

Dr Harvey has published widely in areas of higher education policy, including student equity, admissions, retention, and globalisation. He is lead editor of Student Equity in Australian Higher Education: Twenty-five years of A Fair Chance for All (Springer, 2016). 

Refreshments will be provided.
