The Black Lives Matter movement, Rhodes Must Fall and related campaigns, and efforts to decolonise the curriculum have only grown in prominence in UK higher education over the past few years. Students and staff alike are mobilising to advance racial equality in universities, while university leaders have committed themselves to acting on charters, plans and review recommendations. But what have been the collective impact of these actions locally, nationally, and internationally? And what are the tensions that remain?

This session will draw together the practitioner experience of individuals at the forefront of driving change on these issues with theory to trace some of the key developments in UK higher education. We will detail the successes and consider the challenges faced by institutions and explore the progress of racial equality in relation to teaching and learning, the experiences of students and staff, the nature of research collaborations and internationalisation, and the overall financial model of universities. Importantly, the session will think through the initiatives that could make a positive difference to achieving further racial equality within UK universities and which may have resonance to other system of higher education globally.
