Race Equality

The University’s participation in the Race Equality Charter provides a framework for analysis and results in a comprehensive action plan to promote race equality.  The University was awarded a Bronze Race Equality Award in 2018.

BME Staff Network offers information and subscription to the Black and Minority Ethnic staff network.

The Target Oxbridge programme helps high-achieving black students gain places at the UK’s top universities.

Every two weeks in term-time the Equality and Diversity Unit compiles a Race Equality Newsletter rounding up talks, events, and projects that may be of interest.  To subscribe, please email:

The BME Staff Network and Equality and Diversity Unit of the University of Oxford celebrate Black History Month every October with a series of content streams and events recognising and appreciating the contributions that BME communities make to society and the University itself.
