The University has reaffirmed its clear intent to be an anti-racist institution, starting a comprehensive programme of activity to create greater race equity at an event held on 10 October hosted by Dr Kendi Guantai, Associate Professor & University Dean for Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI). Author, philosopher, social justice and human rights advocate-activist, educator and founder of The Center for the HumanSpirit and Radical Reimagining, Dr David W. Robinson-Morris, gave an address at this event, speaking about his work to radically reimagine diversity, equity, and inclusion toward racial justice and systemic transformation..

The University is participating in the Race Equality Charter (REC), a national recognition scheme that is designed to help dismantle barriers to racial justice in higher education and improve the representation, experiences, progression and success of staff and students from racially minoritised ethnic groups.
