Race equality 

We are committed to providing the best support, the best learning experience and the best working environment for students and staff, regardless of racial background. We want you to be confident that racial equality is taken seriously at the university. 

The University of Nottingham is a member of the Race Equality Charter. This gives us a framework in which to identify, explore and consider issues affecting the representation, progression and success of minority ethnic students and staff at the university. It is a useful process through which we can drive culture and process change across the university. 

We are working to improve the experience of studying and working at the university for our BME (Black and minority ethnic) students and staff. Our Race Equality Charter steering group, chaired by Stacy Johnson MBE and Professor Sarah Sharples, have sucesfully helped the university secure Race Equality Charter Bronze award in 2021.

Definition of race 

The Equality Act 2010 protects people from discrimination on the grounds of race, colour, nationality and/or ethnicity. You may see the abbreviations BME or BAME used in equality monitoring data. BME refers to Black and minority ethnic, while BAME refers to Black, Asian and minority ethnic.
