Inaugural national 'Muslim Students in Australian Universities' conference hosted by the University of Western Sydney
3 and 4 September 2007
Crowne Plaza Hotel, Parramatta, NSW

The University of Western Sydney (UWS) plans to bring together government, university and TAFE leaders as well as high school principals and representatives of the Muslim community at the two-day conference.

The Conference aims to stimulate debate; it will discuss national strategies which universities may use in making provision for Muslim students; examine and further develop inclusive practices and teaching strategies; identify areas where adjustment is needed and the principles behind these; discuss issues associated with gender, discrimination and respect for difference; and to engage the Australian Muslim community in partnership and dialogue about educational aspirations, and local involvement.
