Abstract

The range of contemporary national enquiries into higher education provides evidence that academic futures continue to change. In the USA, the Spellings Report (2006: ix) came to the 'uneasy conclusion that the sector’s past attainments have led our nation to unwarranted complacency about its future'. Concerns included inequitable access to post-secondary education, and variable standards and outcomes including the low literacy skills of some graduates. In Australia, the Review of Higher Education Discussion Paper (2008: 1) focused on a sustainable role for higher education in a rapidly changing society.
