8. The future of higher education - who will set the settings?

In the season finale of The New Social Contract, host Tamson Pietsch is joined by Dr Gwilym Croucher, Senior Lecturer at the Melbourne Centre for the Study of Higher Education, to consider for the final time how the relationship between universities, the state and the public might be reshaped as we live through the COVID-19 pandemic.
In this episode we look beyond Federal Education Minister Tehan’s proposals to ask three questions:
  1. What is the vision for higher education that lies behind the Coalition Government’s plans?
  2. What bigger questions about universities do they raise?
  3. What might be some of the other ways those questions could be answered?
