Black Advisory Hub


About the event

Thursday 9 March

This one-day forum is being co-designed by a team of student and staff researchers involved in the Access and Participation Plan's Participatory Action Research Project.

Open to all Cambridge staff and students concerned about the awarding gaps that impact Black undergraduate students, it will be an opportunity for critical dialogue on ways forward to enhance educational experiences at Cambridge and to reflect on the range of decolonisation initiatives already underway across the University.

Visit the forum page for more information about the event itself, which will be updated with information about keynote speakers, workshops and the programme as it becomes available. Please contact the project team if you have any questions.

You can also register for the event now.
