Abertay prominent in new Equality Challenge Unit report

24 October 2014

Abertay University plays a prominent role in a new report by the Equality Challenge Unit, making the case for equality and diversity in higher education.

The research looks at the broadest interpretation of the business case for equality and diversity in higher education institutions and suggests how vice-chancellors and principals can lead change.

Abertay's Principal and Vice-Chancellor, Professor Nigel Seaton, is one of 12 university leaders interviewed in the report about their personal values and motivations as well as the institutional drivers and benefits of championing the equality and diversity agenda.

The research makes specific recommendations for vice-chancellors, chairs of council and governing with regard to personal leadership, encouraging active involvement from governing bodies, and holding leaders to account for progress.

The report is available to read on the ECU website.
