Project Goal: Whole-of-University Approaches

wouWhole-of-University has been translated to mean mainstreaming, governance, student support and other definitions dependent on the institution. This project will provide a definition and principles that will provide clarity and transparency for a national approach to Whole-of University initiatives in Indigenous higher education.

There has been an increasing amount of literature related to Whole-of-University approach to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander higher education investigating measurement, institutional good practice, reviews and recommendations.

This project aims to consolidate the literature on a Whole-of-University approach to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander higher education, to produce a concept of a virtual preferred university model.

Project Lead: Ms Leanne Holt, University of Newcastle
