Take part in Decolonising DMU's new research study



Decolonising DMU are running an evaluative research study as part of the project and would like you to take part.

This work follows on from the successful work of the Freedom to Achieve project, which worked towards closing the attainment gap between Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) and White students. Decolonising DMU aims to develop a much broader, institution wide approach to better understand, appreciate and challenge the factors which contribute to there being an attainment gap.

In this research the thoughts and opinions of DMU students is essential to the design, development and success of DMU’s decolonisation journey. The purpose of this study is to support the project in developing a more fully inclusive and socially progressive university by tackling racial discrimination and disadvantage on a structural, cultural and individual level.

The survey focuses on your experience of studying at DMU, so requires no additional work on your part. There are a total of 10 questions which should take no more than 10 minutes to complete. This work is independent of your course and your responses will only be handled by the research team. Where findings are shared across the university, they will be anonymised to ensure that individual students are not identifiable.

Student voice is crucial to the success of Decolonising DMU – please make your voice heard and help us to improve the cultural inclusivity of DMU.
