48th Conference of the European Universities Association
From 1- 3 June, the Higher Education Research Centre of DCU is pleased to host the 48th Conference of the European Universities Association. The theme of this year's conference is particularly relevant to DCU's Mission: 'Crossing borders through lifelong learning: enhancing quality and equity in higher education'. Lifelong Learning programmes provide bridges for adult students who wish to enter higher education, particularly those from under-represented groups. This conference will contribute to a dialogue across Europe on crossing different types of borders- geographic, disciplinary, institutional and generational– with a view to improving access to higher education for new groups of students. The conference will be of interest to those involved in promoting and supporting access to higher education including researchers, policy makers, administrators and teachers working in higher and adult education.
