'Towards a Business Case'
- The Royal National Hotel, Bedford Way, London WC1
- 11 October 2007 10:30-16:00
This event sees the official launch of the findings of an important new study into the successful embedding of widening participation. It will provide an opportunity for participants to engage with the emerging issues and to trial workshop materials to support the embedding of diversity and widening participation within institutions.
The Academy-commissioned research combines a literature review with in-depth case studies of institutions, exploring the enablers and challenges for HEIs seeking to adopt an embedded approach to diversity and widening participation. Through identifying the associated benefits and costs for different stakeholders within institutions the research examines the principles of a business case model for the sector.
This event will be particularly useful for all staff with an active widening participation or diversity brief, particularly those engaged in:
developing policy and practice at an institutional level
enhancing and managing the HE student experience
researching the HE student experience
implementing diversity and widening participation policies within institutions
It is hoped that the keynote speaker
will be Bill Rammell, Minister
of State in the new Department for Innovation, Universities and Skills.
