Naomi Tootell Senior Research Officer, Ctr Higher Ed Equity & Diversity Res

Naomi Tootell is currently coordinating La Trobe University's efforts on the Raising Expectations project. Originally funded by a Sidney Myer Large Fund Grant (2015-2018), and currently funded by the Victorian Department of Education and Training (2018-2022), the project aims to improve higher education access and success for young people in out-of-home care and those who have transitioned to independence, i.e. care leavers. Naomi has contributed to a number of other research projects focused on equity in higher education. In 2018, Naomi was a Chief Investigator on a project examining student equity within university-third party delivery and non-university higher education providers. The project was funded by the National Centre for Student Equity in Higher Education. Naomi was initially employed at the Centre in 2015 to work on the National Priorities Pool project, 'The adaptation of tertiary admissions practices to growth and diversity'. She has previously contributed to various ARC and government-commissioned research projects at the University of Melbourne and Charles Darwin University.
