Regional Universities Network (RUN) vice-chancellors have signed an accord formalising collaborative arrangements in teaching and learning, regional policy development, research and research training, and international activities.
The chair of RUN, vice-chancellor of the University of Ballarat David Battersby, says the Accord will boost the range of courses available to regional students by pooling teaching resources. Course units available at one university can be offered via distance education to others, broadening the scope of offerings available in a cost-effective manner:.
It will enable [RUN universties} to enhance the role we play in our communities, raise the aspiration of regional students for tertiary education, build human capital in the regions, and further contribute to the economic, social and cultural development of our communities.
The network’s members are CQUniversity, Southern Cross University, University of Ballarat, University of New England, University of Southern Queensland and University of the Sunshine Coast.
