- Charles Sturt University welcomes performance-based funding model announced by federal government
- Further comments from Vice-Chancellor Professor Andrew Vann will be made when more detailed information on the proposals for calculating the targets and indicators is known
“Charles Sturt University (Charles Sturt) welcomes the federal government’s announcement it will lift a two-year freeze on support for undergraduate places based on university performance.
“It is encouraging that universities will be measured for how well they perform in graduate employment outcomes, student success, student experience, and enrolment of Indigenous, disadvantaged and rural students, as these are criteria in which Charles Sturt boasts an enviable record.
“We are looking forward to getting more detailed information on the proposals for calculating the targets and indicators, at which time we will provide further comment.
“Charles Sturt would like to thank the panel of five expert vice-chancellors for their work in devising the performance measures, and whole-heartedly endorses their overall approach, which encourages a focus on the same social outcomes which are closely aligned with Charles Sturt’s mission.
“We also commend Education Minister Dan Tehan for his commitment to taking further feedback before finalising the scheme. We look forward to working further with him and the Department of Education on the future of the higher education sector.”
