Diversity and Cross Sector Pathways

RMIT has a major role to play in meeting the lifelong learning needs of both individuals and the workforce of the future. RMIT is committed to making higher education more accessible, flexible and equitable to under-represented groups.

There is evidence that some pathways models have the capacity to improve the participation of under-represented groups in higher education.

The Australian Learning and Teaching Council has funded a two year research project investigating pathways models and their capacity to improve diversity in higher education. The research project is conduced by Associate Professor Anthony Mills and Tricia McLaughlin of RMIT with support from Curtin University (WA), UTS (NSW) and University of Western Sydney (NSW). The project objectives, rationale and deliverables are available at the ALTC exchange (Lifelong Learning Pathways: Addressing participation and diversity in higher education).
