Race discrimination in universities still a problem, reports survey

Nearly 60 per cent of black and minority ethnic higher education staff and students questioned for a survey feel they have been discriminated against

According to the Race Equality Survey, undertaken by the group Black British Academics, 56 per cent reported discrimination, while almost three quarters (73 per cent) said they would rate their institutions’ performance on race equality as “poor” or “very poor”.

Many of the 100 respondents criticised institutions’ recruitment and promotion practices, with comments complaining of “closed doors”, “differential treatment” and being “cold shouldered”.
