Indigenous Higher Education Conference

Due to the outbreak of COVID-19, the Indigenous Higher Education Conference (IHEC), held in collaboration with the University of Melbourne, will be postponed until 2021. 

'Sharing best practice across the sector is vital to deliver the best outcomes for [Indigenous Australians]. This requires identification and verification of best practice activity not just by universities, but also local communities and student groups.' (Indigenous Strategy 2017–2020, Universities Australia)

The third biennial Indigenous Higher Education Conference (IHEC) will not go ahead as scheduled on 26–27 November 2020, but will instead be rescheduled until 2021. Please check back for new dates, to be announced later in the year. 

IHEC was established in collaboration with the University of Melbourne as a forum for educators, researchers, policymakers, students and the community to share information and knowledge about how best to support and improve educational outcomes for Indigenous students undertaking higher education.

The conference theme, keynote speakers and call for papers will be announced later in the year.
