The Mission

This ARC8 Expert Group will discuss the opportunities, risks, and challenges related to expanding equitable access and success in higher education and develop a chapter dedicated to this topic in the ARC8 Outlook Report 2030: Inclusive and Diverse Higher Education in Asia and Europe.

The ARC8 Expert Group will present their chapter at the ARC8 Conference on 10 September 2021. During their session, the experts will present recommendations for expanding and advancing equity policies in higher education to the ASEM Senior Officials and university leaders from Asia and Europe.

Topics discussed in this chapter are: equity vs equality in higher education, monetary and non-monetary access instruments, underrepresented groups, gender gap, digital divide, disadvantaged, vulnerable and excluded populations. 

ARC8 Expert Group Sessions

In the span of 8 months, ARC8 Experts share knowledge and discuss specific opportunities, risks, and challenges related to equitable access and success in higher education. During each Expert Group Session two ARC8 Experts give a 10-minute presentation each. After every presentation, members of the Expert Group ask questions, give comments, and contribute towards making the discussion more in-depth.

These ARC8 Expert Group sessions are essential to the process of developing the output, an entire chapter dedicated to the specific topic as part of the report ARC8 Outlook 2030: Inclusion and Diversity in Higher Education in Asia and Europe.

The PowerPoint Presentations of experts and the summary of their presentations are made available here.
