David Mandzuk – Journal of Higher Education Policy and Management, 2024
There is a growing body of literature on the roles that deans play in challenging times; however, what is often missing are deans' own voices as they reflect on their experiences trying to manage the dilemmas and crises inherent in their work.

Differentials in graduate employment outcomes are pervasive across Australian higher education.

Li, Ian W.; Jackson, Denise; Carroll, David R. – Journal of Higher Education Policy and Management, 2023
Higher education participation has increased worldwide given policies devoted to widening participation for under-represented groups, including the use of alternative entry pathways to university.

Baker, Sally; Xavier, Anna; Due, Clemence; Dunwoodie, Karen; Newman, Alex – Journal of Higher Education Policy and Management, 2023
Employability is a powerful discourse in higher education, yet as a driver for policy and practice it has not translated into an uplift in graduate outcomes for all student groups. In particular, Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Migrant and/or Refugee (CALDMR) students experience inequitable graduate outcomes and access to meaningful…

Skills in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) are promoted by the Australian government as pivotal for Australia's economic prosperity.
