BU is a diverse place to work, study and visit and we believe in promoting equality of opportunity throughout the organisation, and became a member of the Race Equality Charter in 2016.
The Race Equality Charter is an initiative managed by the Equality Challenge Unit (ECU) and aims to improve the representation, progression and success of minority ethnic staff and students within higher education.
We're currently preparing to apply for the Bronze Race Equality Charter award in early 2019 and as part of our application, we are asking our students and staff for their feedback on our race equality priorities and future activity.
All students and staff were sent an email in mid-March from Professor John Vinney, Vice-Chancellor of the university, which includes a link to the survey. This is an important aspect of our vision for BU and we are committed to making progress – which is why all students and staff are encouraged to take 10 minutes to respond to the survey before it closes at midnight on Sunday 29 April.
You can find further details about the survey on the Equality Challenge Unit website and you can learn more about our current work at BU to prepare our Race Equality Charter Award application.
