Welcome to the June 2017 edition of The Institutional Researcher.
The 2017 AAIR SIG Forum in July is not far away! Make sure to check out the forum’s page for details of what exciting programs to expect for the two days (26–27 July)!
The buzzword this month is still budget, budget, budget! Universities across Australia had a busy start in June putting in submissions to the Senate Education and Employment Legislation Committee on the Higher Education Reform Package. The full report will be released on 9 August 2017.
Also, don’t miss our summary of the New Zealand Budget which was announced on 25 May 2017.
The other word of the month is of course, phigital. Read on to find out what it means!
We recognise there is a significant focus on Australian news and content but are mindful of all Australasian members, particularly our New Zealand members. Please don’t hesitate to make contact with us if you have a significant news item or activity in your region you wish to share – or would like covered in future issues.
And finally, Dr Anne Statham from Queensland University of Technology (QUT) is in the Institutional Researcher’s Corner this month with her responses to our five quick questions.
