Our data

Throughout our REC work, a significant amount of data relating to staff and students has been considered.

Analysis of the data has allowed a greater understanding of racial inequalities that exist across campus and impact upon both staff and students. This has been integral to developing greater understanding and the identification and agreement of actions that need to occur to enable progress towards racial equity.

In addition to work to interrogate quantitative data, we also carried out staff and student surveys, analysed quantitative and qualitative data from these, and ran a number of staff and student focus groups. Further information on these, as well as key findings and associated actions can be found within the REC submission.

Data below presents an overview of some of the data within the REC submission.

The following data is shown by racialised group, wherever possible. In some instances (due to smaller numbers) the data is aggregated and the data for Black, Asian and other minority ethnicities is shown collectively in a BAME grouping. We acknowledge that presenting data by BAME/white staff does not acknowledge the gaps that might be present between people of different races and ethnicities. Data is only shown in this way where it is strictly necessary, to ensure we are acting within GDPR laws.
