Announcing our university-wide collaboration:
Promoting Racial Justice in Teaching and Learning
This diverse collection of pieces draws on the knowledge, talents and lived experiences of staff and students to speak to the theme of racial justice in teaching and learning.
The University of Reading is pleased to publish the Promoting Racial Justice in Teaching and Learning journal for free. Bringing together contributors from around the university, the poems, essays, and reflections inside look back at some of the work we have done, take stock of where we are now and look forward to a fairer, more inclusive university.
The journal is part of the university’s ongoing commitment to support staff and students to engage in our journey towards racial equality, as outlined in the Race Equality Review.
How students can get involved
- We invite eligible students to apply for the role of Inclusion Consultants. The aim of this role is to work with staff in schools and departments to remove the structural barriers which may impede Black, Asian and minority ethnic students from fulfilling their potential for academic excellence.

- Between The Lines is a discussion space for staff and students which uses cultural media as a springboard for discussions about race and identity. Spaces are limited but you can express your interest.
- Join the conversation. Tell us how you think the University of Reading could be a more inclusive place.
How staff can get involved
