2010 / 2011 - Equitable Chances: IAU’s Actions to Promote Access and Success in Higher Education

Equitable Chances A new booklet, summarizing the IAU’s work on the theme of Equitable Access and Success in higher education was produced in 2011.

Following the adoption of the Policy Statement entitled Equitable Access and Success in Quality Higher Education (please see below), the IAU launched, in 2010, a pilot project on the issues of equitable access and success. Ten pilot HEIs from Asia and the Americas took part in the project designed to learn what approaches these institutions put in place to improve both entry and progression for students from under-represented groups (to learn more about this project, please click [here].

This booklet was produced and introduced on the occasion of the IAU 2011 International Conference in Kenya, and was disseminated to all the IAU Members in February 2012. It presents the actions and results the Association has achieved so far in regards to the twin issues of equitable access and success in higher education. This pilot project benefited from the on-going advice of the IAU international Task Force focusing on Access and success. The IAU also gratefully accepted financial and in-kind support from the World Bank, Lumina Foundation and the University of Arizona.
