Narrowing the Gaps
Sheffield Hallam University staff can access the data dashboard via the Source (Specialist Student report: BAME Degree Awarding Outcomes).
Addressing degree outcome differentials
This website has been designed to help you to understand more about the degree awarding gap, also called the degree attainment gap, between white and Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME students), the causes of the gap, and what can be done to reduce and then eradicate the gap. You can read about departmental and Hallam-wide activities, gain support to develop and evaluate an initiative, and read about good practice and research from across the sector.
The degree awarding differential at Sheffield Hallam is above the national picture at 18 percentage points.
As our Vice-Chancellor, Professor Sir Chris Husbands, discusses in his blog post for Universities UK, having a degree attainment gap between our white and our Black, Asian and minority ethnic students is unacceptable. Reducing and eradicating the gap requires sustained effort from all staff, working alongside our students.
This work is being led by Professor Jacqueline Stevenson and undertaken in partnership with Hallam’s Student Union and staff from across the University.
