Comprised of over 18 universities, the SAR Australia National Section promotes the values, goals, and activities of the Scholars at Risk Network throughout Australia. The SAR Australia section works to facilitate regional collaboration and coordination of network activities and events in addition to sharing resources and best practices.
SAR Australia member institutions provide advisory services to threatened scholars and university hosts; campaign for scholars who are imprisoned or silenced in their home countries; monitor attacks on higher education communities worldwide; and develop innovative tools and strategies for promoting academic freedom and improving respect for university values everywhere.
The SAR Australia Section was formally launched on August 19, 2021. The launch of the Australia Section represented the culmination of several years of partnership between Australian higher education institutions and the Scholars at Risk Network. The University of the Sunshine Coast will convene the section for its first two years.
