Supporting diversity

We mark Black History Month, valuing diversity in our University and the benefits this brings to students and staff throughout the year.

We explore the cultures and histories of people of African descent through our research and teaching, and the activities of our staff and students.  

Our University welcomes a diverse community of staff and students from across the globe. Our ambition is to be an inclusive and diverse organisation, and endorsing Black History Month allows us to share activities of our staff and students with local communities. We are part of a city with a long history of challenging issues related to Black culture, but we hope to build closer connections with BAME communities.
