The University of Chile proposes to host the inaugural APRU Experts' Workshop on Equity and Access in Higher Education 2014 and work on a three-year program and work plan. The objectives include establishing an Asia-Pacific network of major research universities on this area and identifying collaborations to address specific equity issues and providing an APRU platform for engagement with government, business, public policy and international organizations.
The workshop will address conceptual and practical issues as well as best practices in equity and access at APRU member universities. Member universities are invited to learn from one other's experiences and approaches to equity and access. The dates for the conference are scheduled for April 10 and 11, 2014.
