Cathy Stone

University of Newcastle
Conjoint Associate Professor
Dr Cathy Stone is an independent consultant and researcher in the field of post-secondary student equity, retention and success.  For many years Cathy held senior management roles in student support services at the University of Newcastle, Australia, where she continues as a Conjoint Associate Professor with the School of Humanities and Social Science. As an active researcher, Cathy’s publications focus particularly on the experiences of mature-age, first-in-family and online students. Cathy’s work with Open Universities Australia between 2011-2014 helped to develop her strong interest in the online student experience. In 2016 she undertook further research into improving outcomes for online students, in her role as an Equity Fellow with the National Centre for Student Equity in Higher Education (NCSEHE) at Curtin University, where she continues an Adjunct Fellow. The findings from this research have informed a set of National Guidelines for Improving Student Outcomes in Online Learning.
