Inclusion within higher education presents complex challenges for the sector including increased regulatory attention on the broader student experience or an increased desire to engage with students through a range of new techniques and technologies. There is a need for the institution to ensure that as it evolves that it is welcome environment for all.
Our portfolio will support your institution to help make everyone feel welcome.
We bring a wealth of expertise to our portfolio of services in fostering inclusion, identifying the drivers for change in the Equality in HE Statistical Report, and our work across the sector, such as the support of the Disabled Students Commission, and providing the forum for the sharing good practice in our conferences and symposia such as the EDI Conference.
