Attend the Role of Universities in the 2020s Symposium, exploring the role of universities and the tertiary sector in responding to changing labour market needs and a diverse student population.
The Symposium is part of a series of events commemorating the centenary of the birth of Sir Zelman Cowen, the distinguished Australian scholar, statesman, and a university leader in Australia and internationally.
The Symposium – presented by Victoria University’s Vice-Chancellor, Professor Peter Dawkins AO, the Sir Zelman Cowen Centre and the Mitchell Institute for Education and Health Policy – builds on the recent Mitchell Institute policy paper, Rethinking and Revitalising Tertiary Education (PDF).
It will be facilitated by Professor Glyn Davis AC. Other speakers include Vice-Chancellors from the universities with which Sir Zelman was closely associated – the University of Melbourne, the University of Queensland, University of New England, Griffith University and Oriel College, Oxford – along with senior leaders from business and industry.
