Hi, and welcome. It is Darlene McLennan here. On behalf of the National Centre for Student Equity in Higher Education, I welcome you to this webinar. It is titled Exploring the Retention and Performance of Students with Disability. Before we go on to our presenters, I just want to provide a few housekeeping details. At this stage, Tasmania is experiencing a few Internet issues and it may be that we may disappear for a minute or two. I am hoping that we won't but if we do, please just hang on the line and we will be back soon. The webinar is being live captioned by Rebekah from Bradley Reporting. The webinar will be recorded and once - and will be placed on ADCET after we have captioned the recording. Also for those who have been online before, are aware that the GoTowebinar platform is not as accessible as we would like for screen-reader users, such as people using Jaws. If you are a screen-reader user and have any comments or questions throughout the webinar, please e-mail ADCET.firstname.lastname@example.org. All participants have been muted so we receive as little background noise as possible. We encourage you to ask questions in the question pod throughout the presentation. Our presenters will be stopping probably at slide eight and to ask for questions at that point, just so that they see that it might be quite an interesting to part to stop and actually have questions from people. I will ask the questions, so if you can write in the pod I will ask. But firstly, before we get into the presentation, I would like to welcome Sue Trinidad who is the director and leader of the centre to give us an overview of the program and the research at the centre. Over to you, Sue.
