Summary

"The Government has implemented a number of programmes designed to enhance the participation of Indigenous Australians in higher education. The aggregate participation of Indigenous Australians in higher education has shown a fairly steadily increasing trend since 1987. The participation levels of Indigenous people are still below those for the non-Indigenous population. The first part of this report examines these patterns of difference in more detail. Since they are a part of a broader historical pattern of economic and social disadvantage, redress cannot be expected solely from the efforts of the higher education sector, but it does have an important contribution to make. The second part of this report looks at trends over time illustrating the degree of progress that has been made in reducing the differences between the higher education experience of Indigenous and non-Indigenous people. The third part of the report provides some comparisons between different higher education institutions, illustrating how they have individually contributed to these achievements." -- Website.
