n South African Journal of Higher Education - Reflections on equity and diversity at higher education institutions in South Africa

Volume 19, Issue 4
  • ISSN : 1011-3487



Equity and diversity have become part of the dialogue, debate, policy and scholarship at higher education institutions in South Africa. These have appeared through the transformation agendas at institutions, focussing on a number of different issues: student access and development, staff equity, institutional climate or culture etc. This paper reflects on the issues of equity and diversity in higher education institutions through the development of a framework of domains into which existing research may be classified. The organising framework incorporates the variables that impact the development of equity and diversity, documents the research and practice, and identifies areas for further research in the field of equity and diversity in higher education institutions.
