The importance of universities to Australia’s prosperity

Contributing to the success of the nation

Examining the ways in which universities contribute to our economic and social prosperity and how the sector’s role is likely to evolve and grow over time.

As institutions, universities embody social, economic and intellectual resources which combine to generate benefits on a local, national and global scale. They equip students with the knowledge and skills that allow them to make greater contributions to society; they generate and disseminate knowledge which enhances productivity and improves living standards; and they provide a myriad of broader community benefits.

This report canvasses and examines the various ways in which universities contribute to our economic and social prosperity and how, given the economic imperatives confronting Australia, the sector’s role is likely to evolve and grow over time.

This report was commissioned by Universities Australia and informed the development of Universities Australia’s Keep it Clever - Policy Statement 2016.
