Usually, the latest news leads the content for our regular monthly newsletter. This month we noticed a number of stories centred on student health and wellbeing, and hence some international perspectives on what appears to be a more prolific interest in matters related to student mental health. The rising rate of student mental health problems is a global issue, with many institutions taking a whole of institution approach, and more pockets of good practice being shared amongst the sector. We will hear more of this issue I’m sure.
Thanks to Zanne van Wyk for her comprehensive summary of the recent 2018 AAIR SIG Forum held in Canberra. Zanne has summarised what was a very busy program of presentations. Zanne was also part of the organising group who, as usual, did a wonderful job of this year’s event. Thanks also to the other members of the organising team: Fiona Sutherland, Pallavi Khanna, Don Johnston and Andrew Bradshaw.
We interviewed David Carroll this month in his very own Institutional Researcher’s Corner. David is an economist and specialist in higher education and, as with all our researchers, it is a pleasure to hear from him. We hope you enjoy this month’s interview.
