Anti-racism in Higher Education

How is your institution enabling Black, Asian and minority ethnic staff and students to thrive? Is your institution effectively tackling racism?

Following the 2020 Black Lives Matter movement, the higher education sector has started making bold commitments to dismantling structural racism. However, big questions remain about how higher education can combat institutional racism and achieve real change.

This book disrupts the higher education sector through ambitious actions and collective, participatory and evidence-informed responses to racism. It offers a roadmap for senior leaders, staff and students to build strategies, programmes and interventions that effectively tackle racism.

Arising from current staff and recent student experiences, this book supports institutions driving equality, diversity, inclusion and intersectional programmes in higher education.

Arun Verma is a leader in integrating intersectionality, race equality action in design, development and action throughout the higher education, third and public sectors both nationally and globally.
