The Australian Universities Accord Panel (the Panel) has released a Discussion Paper outlining the fundamental challenges facing the Australian higher education sector.

The Discussion Paper is structured around a series of prompt questions to stimulate conversation about how Government, the sector and other relevant stakeholders can work together to deliver a higher education system that meets the current and future needs of the nation.
Interested stakeholders are invited to make a submission in response to the Discussion Paper. Submissions will help the Panel articulate the role the higher education sector should play in Australia’s development, what the system should look like in 30 years’ time, and how we get there. 

Further details on the Discussion Paper and how to share your views are available at the Department of Education’s Accord Discussion Paper page
Submissions close on 11 April 2023.
