BAME Forum


Chair: Amy York, Senior Access Officer (Policy and Development), UCL.

This forum provides a consultative assembly for those staff from AccessHE member HEIs working to support progression to and through HE for those from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) backgrounds.

The BAME forum is currently exploring the development of a social media/web campaign highlighting personal stories of students of colour in London, as well as a project to support both HE students and staff to engage with critical questions around inclusive teaching and diversifying the curriculum.

Objectives

    • Changing Mindsets
    • Retention
    • Attainment
  • To maximise opportunities for collaboration, partnerships, networking and information sharing.
