Social Inclusion Group



Social Inclusion at the University of Warwick is about removing economic, social, and cultural barriers that have prevented people from working, studying, and succeeding.

The Social Inclusion Strategy will help Warwick to re-imagine the original purpose of setting up the University in 1965, to ‘increase access to higher education’.

We launched the University’s Social Inclusion Strategy in August 2019 as a framework to deliver our ambition of a place where everyone has the opportunity to reach their potential and to be recognised as best in class in our approach to equality, diversity, and inclusion, for staff and students by 2030.

"In a university inclusion is about creating a culture where talent is nurtured, knowledge is created and exchanged, and our campus is welcoming. We can do this by understanding what we owe each other as human beings, and for me that means valuing the people our actions and work impacts on." Kulbir Shergill, Director of Social Inclusion
