About the project

Greenwich is part of a consortium of six universities who are tackling the issue of the BAME attainment gap by implementing improvement strategies developed at Kingston University. Working closely with the Students' Union, we have run various training events, reported to a number of university committees and attended Departmental Meetings. In May we launched the Community of Practice, where facilitators and others from each Department/Directorate can meet together and share their approaches to developing a more inclusive curriculum.
