Issues for higher education

The Committee for Economic Development of Australia will hold a seminar entitled The Australian Vice-Chancellor’s Committee’s Higher Education Issues for the New Federal Government on Tuesday October 19 at the Hyatt Regency.

Keynote speaker Australian Vice-Chancellor’s Committee president Professor Di Yerbury AO will address attendees.

Professor Yerbury will speak about the increasingly important role Australian universities have in the advancement of the nation, and the interaction this has with our growing reliance on the advancement of knowledge, employment skills, and research and innovation.

The discussion will also cover the need to address continued development as well as keep up with major international competitors and trading partners.

Following this the seminar will go on to discuss relationships with stakeholders that are integral to the Australian Vice-Chancellor’s Committee – these include support across business, industry, governments, and the Australian community in general.

Relationships forged and strengthened across these groups will ensure universities continue to contribute to the growth of Australia’s social, economic, cultural development and sustainability.

The soon to be determined next federal government will be the focus of the AVCC who will work to ensure constructive higher education policy and legislative outcomes that strengthen universities will be prioritised.

Registrations for the seminar can be made with the Committee for Economic Development of Australia. For members $82 and $94 for non-members.
