Abstract: The struggle to make equity the key focal point for institutions of higher education and their key stakeholders - even in a climate of the federal government's social inclusion policy - remains a challenge due to many competing pressures. In 2009, a presentation was given at ACU's Learning, Teaching and Social Justice Symposium based on the preliminary findings of research on multiple educational disadvantage, equity issues in higher education, the overlay of equity subgroups, and the finding of a gradient of educational disadvantage in equity overlap. These findings have subsequently been published in a variety of media. Today's presentation continues the story. It will report on the further research journey of work being conducted in the area of multiple educational disadvantage for the purposes of supporting diversity, guiding pedagogy, and promoting inclusive practices within the higher education sector.
