Support reform bill, now without funding cut: IRU Submission

The Innovative Research Universities (IRU) call on the Senate to pass the Higher Education and Research Reform Bill 2014 following the Government’s decision to focus on the important reforms to university funding and student charges it has proposed, without the initial upfront reduction in Government funding.

We need the new approach the Bill offers.

At heart, the role of universities is to educate and to develop knowledge. To do this well universities need more resources.
