Abstract

Australian public universities are statutory creations with common principal objects that clearly focus on providing higher education and research. However most universities have, by necessity, adopted a vigorous approach to commercial enterprise that in some circumstances have given rise to criticism.

The session will focus on the following questions:

1. Should universities participate in commercial activity?

2. Could a university become insolvent?

3. If a university suffers a “disturbing pattern of weak governance and financial control” and has accumulated an insurmountable deficit, what should be the consequences?
