This action research project aimed to position students as central to impacting practice and processes that may contribute to reducing the BAME/white degree attainment gap. A steering group with student members was formed to discuss desired changes to practice and process, and to develop and manage projects to completion by September 2019 in collaboration with multi-disciplinary staff members. A range of projects overseen by the new steering group are currently in development or delivery.
Final outcome data are pending mixed methods evaluation before the end of 2018. Student leaders (and the wider steering group) will take part in the evaluation process.
It should be relatively straightforward for other departments to implement this project. All that is required is a steering group with students, and for student leaders to network and share ideas with their peers in order to establish projects.
