Anti-racism at the University of Bristol

The University is committed to tackling racism across the entire institution. We will work with our communities to create long-lasting, positive change.

To tackle the racism and inequalities our racially minoritised communities face, we need to understand the University’s complex ties to the transatlantic trafficking of enslaved African people. We also need to understand the impact of its legacy.

What started as a call to change the names of our iconic buildings has grown into a commitment to a Reparative Futures programme. While we will take some immediate actions, we embark on a ten-year journey that will help the University evolve into a more inclusive institution.

It’s a journey of listening, learning, understanding and action, so we can create a more positive future.
