Co-leading internal change with our staff and students
We work to embed diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging in everything we do as a community. That means looking inwards to understand what we need to change.
Campaigning and influencing policy
Our proactive staff Networks develop new ideas and raise awareness around different issues and experiences. They influence policy through our Equality Diversity and Inclusion Committee. Middlesex University Students’ Union (MDXSU) campaign using evidence and collective action to make change around issues that matter to our students. They make students from all backgrounds feel included here.
Inclusivity in the curriculum
Our Anti-Racism Network is working across the university on an inclusive curriculum framework and toolkit. This is supported by a comprehensive staff training package to help colleagues put this knowledge into action. MDXSU lead the ‘decolonising the curriculum’ campaign to make sure students study a curriculum that celebrates diversity and is inclusive of all.
The experience of black students
MDXSU worked with our Centre for Academic Practice to research and write the Black Students’ Experience report. They were supported by the Black Students Liberation Group and African-Caribbean Society and engaged with the Black community through surveys and focus groups. Their report calls for imaginative solutions, including a programme to support more Black students into further study and targets for diversifying leadership roles within the University.
