Flipping the Campus: Counting the Cost of Failure to Retain Black Students
January 21 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
In this CARICUK online roundtable event, we will discuss stories that are rarely told – the stories of Black students whom UK universities fail to retain. That failure follows many different routes: coldness or racist aggression from staff and students, failure to recognise vulnerabilities and wellbeing needs, or simply the everyday grinding pressure of always standing out, always being on display, never being able to bring one’s full authentic self onto campus. In this event, we flip the university campus to reveal the absences and exclusions that lead Black students to leave. What more can universities do to retain Black students?
After the conversation, there will be an opportunity for the online audience to ask questions via Youtube.
This is a free online streamed event. Further details will be released to those registered on the day of the event.
