In a self-paced presentation, I outline my experience as a Student Curriculum Partner, reviewing the content of two modules in my department: Ancient Philosophy and Political Philosophy. 

For philosophy, I took part in analysing two modules in terms of their content and how they are supporting closing the BAME Gap.
I detail key takeaways from this project and from the review itself, including the need to focus on reading lists and increasing cultural awareness.
I also share some ideas of how we can further close the BAME Awarding Gap.
