Upcoming events: Supporting BAME students / Narrowing the Gaps

We’d like to draw your attention to two upcoming events with a specific focus on supporting BAME students:

Supporting black, Asian and minority ethnic students during the coronavirus crisis
Office for Students Webinar – Friday 5th June, 11:00-13:00

*Update: this event is now fully booked but it is hoped a video recording will be made available*

This online event will explore key areas of support needed for black, Asian and minority ethnic students during the coronavirus crisis, using Dr Gurnam Singh’s briefing ‘Supporting BAME students during the COVID-19 crisis’ to stimulate discussion on these areas. Further information/booking

Decolonising the Curriculum Conference 2020 (online)
University of Birmingham, various dates between 4th – 25th June

This annual event is a student-led initiative putting students in the driver’s seat on the discussion of views, ideas, and focuses around what it means and what it takes to decolonise the curriculum, for students and with students.
