Meeting the challenge: Improving Black and minority ethnic student success and attainment

Coventry Techno Centre, Puma Way, Coventry
8 July 2010 09:30-16:30

Higher Education Academy, Equality Challenge Unit with Coventry University

Conference Overview

Following publication of the recommendations of the Ethnicity Gender and Degree Attainment Project (Jan 2008), the Academy and Equality Challenge Unit has been engaged in the delivery of a joint programme of activities to support the sector in addressing the project findings. This one day conference provides an opportunity for colleagues to engage with the emerging body of research about the BME student experience and achievement and with initiatives that offer pointers for making in-roads into reducing the BME attainment gap. This will include the work of institutions taking part in the Academy/ECU developmental summit programme to improve the degree attainment of BME students.
The event will bring researchers, practitioners, policy makers, managers and students together to share and discuss best practices; generate ideas for new research; and disseminate action orientated institutional research and development initiatives.
