The NCSEHE and Equity Practitioners in Higher Education Australasia (EPHEA) are delighted to invite you to attend World Access to Higher Education Day (WAHED) on Wednesday 17 November 2021.
As part of WAHED 2021, we are excited to announce two new initiatives:
Australasian Spotlight on Equity: Grants for recognition of impact
The NCSEHE and EPHEA value the efforts of equity-focused researchers and practitioners across the sector and wish to support our colleagues to raise the profile of their work, as well as supporting their continued professional development.
In 2021, we are launching the Grants for recognition of impact to reward the outstanding contributions of practitioners and researchers in delivering social justice, fairness, and inclusion initiatives for both staff and students.
The total grant pool is A$10,000 and grant recipients will be announced at the WAHED event.
If you are undertaking research and/or practice that is having a significant impact on staff or student outcomes, we encourage you to apply before 5 pm AEDT on Monday 1 November 2021.
Champions for Change is back in 2021!
Do you know someone who has been a Champion for Change in 2021? Last year, over 50 equity practitioners were recognised for their extraordinary efforts in supporting students to succeed in higher education.
We know that it is often small gestures that make a difference to how students experience university — each of us has probably witnessed how a well-timed intervention had a positive impact on an individual learner.
All the Champions will be recognised at our WAHED event and across NCSEHE and EPHEA media channels.
Thank you and we look forward to seeing you at WAHED 2021!
