Black Advisory Hub



If you're looking to learn more about supporting Black students at the University, or in higher education more generally, the resources below may be a helpful place to start. We will work to update this page with further resources as they are developed and shared. Be sure to also check our News on a regular basis.


Race Equality Charter

The University joined the Advance HE Race Equality Charter (REC) in 2016 and received the REC Bronze Award in November 2019. The REC is a national scheme that provides a framework for higher education institutions to recognise, investigate and challenge barriers to recruitment, progression and retention of Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic staff and students.


Access and Participation Plan

Each year, the University of Cambridge sets out how it intends to attract and support students in applying to and studying at the University of Cambridge in the Access & Participation Plan. You can view and learn more about these agreements on the Undergraduate Study website.


Training opportunities

Staff and students within the University are able to access training on a range of subjects. Equality and Diversity offer training on a regular basis on anti-racism, unconscious bias and more. Search for available courses on the University Training Booking System.


Advance HE

In 2013, Advance HE shared an informative literature review on unconscious bias in higher education (including a summary of recommendations).


Race Equality Network (Cambridge Staff)

The Race Equality Network is a community for staff members who identify as BAME and/or who have an interest in the topic of race and would like to contribute to anti-racism initiatives at the University. It aims to create a sense of belonging by providing a safe forum to network, socialise, share, question, challenge and receive support and advice in relation to race equality.


The Anti-Racist Curriculum Project Guide 

Advance HE compiled an extensive list of resources on building an Anti-Racist Curriculum, framed around foundations, reflecting and learning, and planning and doing.
