Success and opportunity in challenging times

Guest editors

Rationale and themes

Times are challenging for higher education practitioners. Government policies around tertiary education in many countries are changing, traditional funding models are being questioned, and government and non-government providers actively compete for students. In the middle of these discussions, the widening participation agenda has gained momentum so that in Australia and internationally increasing numbers of students from named equity groups are accessing higher education. This collection includes articles detailing initiatives being undertaken in the widening participation arena and highlights successes and opportunities amidst challenging times.
