This National Priorities Pool funded project has involved a collaboration of six Australian universities, which collectively undertook a comparative study of the approaches each university employs to guide the prioritisation, management and evaluation of Higher Education Participation and Partnerships Program (HEPPP) funded initiatives aimed at increasing access, participation and outcomes for people from low socio-economic status (LSES) backgrounds, and how they act on the findings from evaluation to plan future policy, initiatives and services. The project addressed two national priority areas: building the evidence base, and more effective programme implementation.
