The Social Mobility Student Research Hub aims to improve access to and participation in research for students from under-represented groups. It offers funded opportunities to enable undergraduate and postgraduate taught students from under-represented groups to carry out research projects on topics relating to widening participation, social mobility, diversity, inclusion, and inequalities. All students receive research training and have a postgraduate research student mentor to support them through the research process.
This year the Research Hub is being led by Dr Tammy Thiele (Widening Participation Evaluation and Evidence Manager) and Victoria Hill (WP Faculty Co-ordinator), with co-investigators from professional and academic departments, including: Professor Emma Smith, Dr Becky Morris, Kate McCarthy (WP Evaluation and Evidence Officer) and Dr Daniel Cashmore (WP Data Analyst).
