Public view of Australian universities edit

Universities Australia conducted "a series of university community forums, engaging directly with decision makers and interested groups such as business" in 2012 (Universities Australia, 2013, p. 1). The study "involved qualitative and quantitative research, including focus groups and a survey of 1000 members of the Australian public and 300 business employers" (Universities Australia, 2013, p. 1).

The study revealed that "while universities are held in high regard and are strongly valued for their contribution to the economy and society, there is a desire to know more. It is also clear that Australians feel there is a need for the university sector to more actively participate in debates about issues important to our national interest." (Universities Australia, 2013, p. 1).
