The Universities Australia Higher Education Conference 2019 was held from 27 February to 1 March 2019 at the National Convention Centre in Canberra. The conference theme was Degrees of Change and the program explored the role that universities must play as drivers of social and economic change. This is the signature annual event for the higher education sector and draws Vice-Chancellors, Chancellors, senior university representatives, Government representatives, industry representatives, members of the research community, international education specialists, and media each year.
