"This week, the federal government released a discussion paper for a
Universities Accord, which it hopes will make a 30-year plan for the sector.

One of the key priorities of the upcoming accord is equal access to university.
The discussion paper specifically asks:

what is needed to increase the number of people from under-represented
groups applying to higher education?

Our new book, based on ten years of research, aims to look beyond narrow
definitions around equity and access to university.

We argue these ignore more subtle inequalities that shape access to higher
education, particularly those that play out at a local level."
