BAME Institutional Action Plan
Following the launch of our Strategic Plan 2020-2025, we have made strides in addressing the targets we set out for the University, the most challenging of which is our target to reduce the BAME awarding gap by 50%.
Our vision as a university is that whatever your background, wherever you are from, higher education can be a transformational experience and we are working towards delivering this vision at every level of the institution.
In September the Academic Board approved an institutional-wide BAME action plan for individuals and departments within the University. The plan comprises bespoke equality actions that have been developed through working with staff and students from across the University and will be used to help students and staff think and work more inclusively. We also plan to produce a summary of this action plan which anyone can download via our website, ensuring we are being transparent, challenging ourselves and being as responsive and focused as possible.
