The latest ANUpoll examines the attitudes of everyday Australians when it comes to universities as places of research, learning and public debate. The results will be officially launched by ANU Vice-Chancellor Professor Brian Schmidt AC.
Key questions include whether universities are preparing Australians for the workforce; whether universities are still places to debate controversial ideas; and whether they play a pivotal role in educating people from disadvantaged or regional backgrounds.
The poll – based on a broad sample of the population – also examines academic freedom on university campuses, the place of international students in Australia and how much confidence Australians have in our universities.
Media are invited to attend the launch.
