Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander university students are enrolling in university degrees at historically high rates; however, the majority of these students are not completing their qualifications.
New research, led by Dr Bep Uink of Murdoch University, investigated the enrolment-completion gap and questioned what supports are available to Indigenous undergraduate students, and how likely they are to access them.
The team provides recommendations on data management; academic and financial support; student support practices; visible acknowledgement of Traditional Owners; mandated professional development; and Indigenous-led auditing of curriculum content.
Wednesday 15 June | 12:00 am to 1:15 pm AEST | 10:00 am to 11:15 am AWST
Online via Zoom.
The webinar will be open to all staff members and students at SAGE subscriber institutions.
