The Australian Government has announced the development of an Australian Universities Accord to build a long-term plan for Australia’s higher education system. A review process will be led by the Australian Universities Accord Panel, led by Professor Mary O’Kane, and will report in 2023. On behalf of the Australian Universities Accord Panel, the Department of Education invites individuals to make a submission on the priorities to be explored through this process in the context of the review Terms of Reference. Submissions received will inform further consultations and detailed submissions processes in 2023, where future calls for submissions will be made.

Further details and full Terms of Reference are available on the Australian Universities Accord website.

This initial submission process will close 19 December 2022.

You can have your say directly by completing a short 5 minute survey on policy priorities for the Accord.
