Preferred Partners in Focus: University of Essex

The University is part of Advance HE’s collaborative project “Towards Embedding Equality, Diversity and Inclusion in the Curriculum”, which will ignite a step change in how the institution thinks about diversity and inclusion, with a particular focus on race and ethnicity.

Alongside this, the Curriculum University of Essex (CUE) project has been established to support BAME student success at the institution. The project will embed the insights acquired from the Advance HE collaboration by improving how the institution manages and develops its curriculum, supporting new courses and existing provision.

In respect to communities of faith, the University’s Code of Practice concerning Religion and Belief commits it to providing mandatory faith provision on campus.
