Race Equality Charter Mark

The continued existence of racial inequalities in higher education limits both minority ethnic individuals and the sector as a whole in fulfilling its full potential.

The Race Equality Charter Mark is an initiative run by the Equality Challenge Unit, which aims to inspire a strategic approach to making cultural and systemic changes that will make a real difference to minority ethnic staff and students. It covers professional and support staff, academic staff, student attainment, diversity of the curriculum and progression of students into academia.

The University formed a Self Assessment Team (SAT), which has been chaired by Professor Pam Thomas since June 2015. The team has been gathering evidence from across the institution, and is currently developing an action plan that details specific measures that the University will commit to implementing over a four year period.

This page will tell you more about the work that has happened so far.
