Student Equity Plan (2014 - 2015)
One of the key steps in the University's strategic plan for 2013 - 2017 is to develop and implement an ambitious student equity agenda. The Student Equity Plan (2014 -2015) outlines our priorities and future plans in respect of student equity, and details strategies that will increase the number of students from equity groups at the University, and support them throughout their studies. The success of these strategies will be reflected in the students' access, participation, retention and success rates. The plan also outlines the strategies for fostering a culture of inclusivity for all students at the University of Canberra.
