IRU Support Higher Education Legislation with Amendments

Australia’s Innovative Research Universities (IRU) support passage of the Higher Education and Research Reform Amendment Bill 2014 with amendments to ensure it best supports the future needs of Australia’s students and universities.

“The Bill tabled in Parliament today sets the basis for a constructive discussion about the Government’s reform package as it moves through the Parliament,” said Conor King, the IRU’s Executive Director.

IRU members support the direction of the legislation, which will provide a viable basis for universities over the next decade.
