Higher education institutions and their views on the Race Equality Charter

This presentation will explore recent research funded by the UCU (University and College Union) which explored higher education institutions and their views on the Race Equality Charter (REC).

This presentation will explore recent research funded by the UCU (University and College Union) which explored higher education institutions and their views on the Race Equality Charter (REC). Very little is known about the impact of the REC, this project therefore, represents a unique perspective on existing and emergent work around the impact of equality policy making in HEIs. The presentation draws on interviews with individuals involved with the REC and those working in diversity and equality departments (with a specific focus on race) in HEIs. The study aims were: to identify aspects of good practice on race equality in institutions awarded the REC; to explore views of member and non-member institutions towards the REC and race equality and to contribute to UCU policy making on race equality and inclusion in HEIs. The talk will examine how universities can develop good practice for the inclusion of BME groups in higher education.
