About

Program Overview

This project responds to current policy and relevant research in relation to the challenges for regional student engagement, success and wellbeing by developing a suite of interconnected resources designed to enable universities nationally to provide ongoing, sustainable support to build the capacity of regional students.

These resources correspond to key milestones across the student life cycle, thereby providing a pedagogical strategy that can help improve the engagement, success and wellbeing for regional students studying at regional universities or at universities committed to regional activity.

Success is generally referred to in terms of academic performance and completion. This project is based on the belief that success needs to include measures related to the health and wellbeing of students during (and after) their studies. The resources developed in this project contribute to the development of health, wellbeing and coping strategies which play a significant role in the achievement of learning outcomes and graduate employability.
