Living Black at University resources published

06 June 2023      Jan Capper, CUBO Executive Director

The Living Black at University Commission has published three resources to help universities address the issues raised in the Unite Students Living Black at University Report published in February 2022.

Living Black at University Research Toolkit

This toolkit is an output of the Unite Students Living Black at University Commission. It enables universities and accommodation providers to replicate the original research with their own student body. 

The toolkit is there to support this research. It includes the survey tool that was used in the original research and there is further advice from the research team on involving Black students in the research, conducting focus groups and acting on the results.

Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Data Maturity Framework

The Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Data Maturity Framework was created to help universities and accommodation providers address issues in response to the Living Black at University report.

Authored by Dr Nick Cartwright, Lecturer in Law at the University of Leeds and Consulting Fellow at Halpin Partnership, the framework demonstrates how universities and accommodation providers can gradually improve how they capture, analyse and respond to issues highlighted by demographic data of students and staff, in order to support a more inclusive and diverse environment.

Living Black at University Commission Cultural Services Toolkit

Unite Students has been working very closely with Newcastle University on a joint project which links the findings of the research to the race equity work at the university, aligned to activity geared towards a Race Equality Charter (REC) award from Advance HE.

It is hoped that this toolkit is used and disseminated as widely as possible, and that all participants engage with it to keep on augmenting its relevance. The Commission would also like it to be a template for creating other culturally relevant toolkits for other student groups, which speaks to the heart of providing an inclusive and meaningful student experience at Newcastle and beyond.
