Co-opted positions for BAME colleagues on University committees

Diversity is critical to sound and innovative decision-making, and colleagues should be aware that the University is committed to improving the diversity of its decision-making forums. This is an important step towards equality of opportunity at Loughborough and is a key theme within our Race Equality Charter (REC) work.

As positions become available on Council, Senate and their sub-committees, we are working hard to ensure diverse applicant shortlists. In the interim, we have created a co-opted position for a Black, Asian or other minority ethnic (BAME) colleague on several University Committees. If you are a colleague from a BAME group, and would like to take up one of these positions and contribute to the governance of the University, please express an interest and outline your expertise here by Friday 4th September. The initial term will be for three years.

Details of the committees and their terms of reference can be found here:
