The Councils of the University of Adelaide and University of South Australia have agreed to formally consider the merits of the creation of a new university through a merger of the two institutions.
Nous Group has been commissioned by the universities to undertake an assessment of the value of the merger and has prepared this discussion paper.
The discussion paper sets out preliminary insights into the potential opportunities and challenges of creating a new university through a merger. It also presents a potential vision for a new university.
The university communities, business and industry, and other stakeholders, are invited to read the discussion paper and to contribute their thoughts. Specific questions for feedback are provided towards the end of the paper.
Submissions may be made before 5pm on 21 September 2018.
