The impact of the Commonwealth Indigenous Advancement Strategy tendering process

The IRU submission targets the impact of the inclusion of higher education Indigenous programmes in the IAS, with the Indigenous Tutorial Assistance Scheme (ITAS) subject to the tendering process. The Innovative Research Universities (IRU) is a network of six research intensive, progressive universities, established in the outer urban areas of Australia’s capitals and in major provincial cities to stimulate economic, social and personal advancement. Our locations bring universities, with comprehensive activities across teaching and research, to areas where higher education participation and attainment is low, and where the university’s research and creation of graduates can strengthen the social and economic prosperity of the region.
