Academic Communications

The University has many ways in which we communicate guidance and information to our academic community. Here we show you the many channels that are used and who they’re for;


  1. Academic Development & Diversity (ADD) Team
  2. University’s Internal Communications Team
  3. College / departmental newsletters

Community specific

We produce communications via group emails and/or subscribers to the websites along with Blog Posts that are linked to the work of our community groups;
  • Inclusive Practice – supporting the work of The Community of Inclusive Practice (a Hallam Guild Group)
  • Hallam Guild – cultivates inclusive staff and student communities of practice across Hallam and acts as an incubator for the development of innovative practices in teaching, learning and supporting the student experience
  • Degree Awarding Gap – 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 (BME students), the causes of the gap, and what can be done to reduce and then eradicate the gap.
