ABSTRACT
The article focuses on Australian politics in early 2013. It mentions then Labor Prime Minister Julia Gillard who was challenged by Tony Abbott, the leader of the Liberal opposition, in the September 2013 prime ministerial election. It states the low profile of higher education in Australia which is contributed by a number of factors including the egalitarian culture, the lack of connection between sport and higher education, and the absence of good public relations (PR) for higher education.
