This website has been designed to help you to understand more about the Degree Awarding 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. 

The degree awarding differential at Hallam is above the national picture at 19% (2018/19).

“Having a degree awarding 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.” Professor Sir Chris Husbands (Vice-Chancellor).

We believe all students should have access to equal opportunities in a fair, inclusive environment and our dedicated team works with University staff and students to deliver targeted action to reduce the gap. These include improving institutional processes, enhancing the knowledge and skills of staff and students, and providing better support.

You can find out more about College, Departmental and Hallam-wide activities, gain support to develop and evaluate an initiative, and read good practice and research from across the sector via the menu headings. 

This website was developed with stakeholders and is maintained by the Academic Development & Diversity Team. For further information please contact the team.
