Fostering Inclusion in Higher Education

Development to support the understanding of common issues, design of inclusive support services, and development of accessible campus environments and make everyone feel welcome at your institution.

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.

Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Conference (2020)

Courageous conversations and adventurous approaches: creative thinking in tackling inequality.

The theme of this conference speaks to the reality of EDI work in both HE and FE - a growing focus for attention internally and externally, ambitious, analytical, forward-looking, practical and increasingly complex. As EDI becomes more embedded in institutional values and strategy and becomes more of a measure for the student experience, institutional interest in creative responses to tackling inequality is growing.

Through forecasting emerging EDI topics and priorities in the sector, the conference will create space for reflection and capacity-building through exploring two sub-themes: ‘courageous conversations’ and ‘adventurous approaches’.
