2018 HEPI / HEA Parliamentary Breakfast Seminar: Equality, Diversity, Inclusivity: Do universities reflect society enough?

21 March, 2018|Events, Seminars|3 Comments|

Our higher education institutions share a commitment to equality and diversity. In theory, this means they are united in their aim to create a balanced and inclusive culture, in which everyone, staff and students, feels valued irrespective of gender, ethnicity, sexuality, age or ability. The latest HEPI / HEA Student Academic Experience Survey, however, reveals a striking difference in wellbeing levels between straight students and those classifying themselves as Gay, Bisexual, Asexual or Other. Students from non-White ethnic backgrounds also report lower levels of satisfaction with their higher education experience. Are our universities failing in their mission to reflect the diversity of wider society? Is the hyper-selectivity of some institutions reinforcing inequality in the sector instead of eliminating it? And what could universities be doing to promote inclusivity in the future?

Speakers

Chris Millward, new Director for Fair Access and Participation, Office for Students

Dr Margaret Casely-Hayford, Chancellor, Coventry University

Professor Kalwant Bhopal, Professorial Research Fellow / Professor of Education and Social Justice, Deputy Director Centre for Research in Race & Education (CRRE), University of Birmingham

2018 HEPI / HEA Parliamentary Breakfast Seminar: Little Britain or Open Borders – what role for universities in defining Britain’s new place on the world stage?

22 February, 2018|Events, Seminars|2 Comments|

As the UK faces up to a future outside the European Union, our universities could have a pivotal role in defining the country’s future. But how can this be delivered? Should they focus on local, national or international priorities – or try to deliver all three? And how can institutions remain world class if they are less able to recruit international students and researchers? How can the UK continue punching above its weight in research across a wide range of disciplines when there are so many new obstacles in the way?

Speakers

Alistair Jarvis, Chief Executive, UUK

David Goodhart, Programme Director, Policy Exchange and author of The Road to Somewhere: The Populist Revolt and the Future of Politics

Dr Lee Jones, Reader in International Politics at Queen Mary, University of London and winner of the THE / HEPI EU Referendum essay competition (2016) https://www.timeshighereducation.com/blog/eu-referendum-essay-competition-should-we-stay-or-should-we-go
