Widening Participation and Race Equality

Edited by Dr Debbie Weekes-Bernard

Cover image

This report features essays from higher education and race equality experts, focusing on the representation and achievement of black and minority ethnic (BME) students in the UK’s universities.

In this collection of papers, the authors address what race equality has to do with widening participation, highlighting that participation is about more than gaining entry to an institution but also progress while there. They also note that different institutions have very different patterns of success in widening participation for under-represented minority ethnic groups.

Contributors to the collection include Professor Miriam David (Institute of Education), the Office for Fair Access, Dr Uvanney Maylor (Institute for Policy Studies in Education) and Runnymede researchers Dr Debbie Weekes-Bernard, Dr Omar Khan and Jessica Mai Sims.
