The pledge aims to increase social mobility, enhancing the opportunities for members of these ethnic minority populations and supporting equality for all.
The University of Hull’s Strategy 2030 recognises that to achieve a more equitable and sustainable society, inclusive social and economic development is essential; this is the case both for the Humber region and globally.
Persistent injustices exist across many different areas of society, including: the inhumanity of modern slavery and exploitation; inequalities in education and health outcomes; and regional disparities in employment opportunities and economic security.
This is why the University is motivated by the desire to lead creative change at the forefront of social justice.
The University of Hull also recognises the unique individual experiences of Gypsy, Roma, Traveller, Showman and Boater students, and how these may inhibit access and participation in higher education.
It will seek to encourage access and participation, and fulfil the commitments of the Pledge.
