Public Lecture & Reception With Dr. Sandra Grey

President, Tertiary Education Union of New Zealand
Professor, Victoria University of Wellington

For three decades governments have changed the rules surrounding tertiary education provision in New Zealand. Tertiary education is increasingly presented as a private good which must provide instrumental benefits (economic growth and labour market productivity) if it is to be relevant in the 21st century. This paradigm is a far cry from the public good approach to tertiary education which dominated most of the 20th century in New Zealand and worldwide. So how is this paradigm shift being achieved and what does it mean for students and their families, and the staff working in tertiary education?

Hosted by the Canadian Association of University Teachers.
