Inclusive equity : a fair go for all

Claremont, Yasuko, Renner, William, Van der Lubbe, Fredericka,

Published Literature

2007

Students do not participate equally in higher education. Inequity can be observed in the statistics of low participa- tion and less-than-satisfactory retention rates.Universities

and governments have been keen to redress this with policies

aimed to support and assist students who are at risk or disadvantaged

in their learning. Yet, these figures and policies mask

the reality of daily life – the broader range of issues and needs which students experience over the course of their studies. In this qualitative study of student equity, we sought to amend

this imbalance of perception with a focus on the experiences

both of students and staff, and to identify positive approaches

for dealing with inequity and with overcoming disadvantage.
