Welcome to the August 2017 edition of The Institutional Researcher.
Two significant activities this month: the release of the Change the course national report on sexual assault and harassment at Australian universities, and; the continuing debate over the federal government’s higher education proposals. Both issues created plenty of media time and we’ve attempted to summarise here.
Amidst all these talks around higher education funding cuts and debate, Australian vice-chancellors’ pay packets unsurprisingly drew scrutiny once again with their million-dollar salaries (average salary package of Australian VCs were $890,000 in 2016).
This month’s Institutional Researcher is Emma Farley, Director for the Office of Planning Services from Griffith University in Brisbane.
And finally, the co-editors thank Alex Sieniarski for her excellent overview of the recent AAIR SIG Event in Sydney. The event was a wonderful prelude to the annual AAIR Forum to be held in Alice Springs, Northern Australia 31 October to 2 November. Registrations are now open and we are also calling for abstracts which closes on 28 August.
