TACKLING THE BAME/BIPOC AWARDING GAP, 3-year project (2022-2025)  - A student-staff collaborative project that addresses the “cold climate” in our classrooms which according to Tate (2019) is the leading cause of the BAME/BIPOC awarding gap at UK universities. This “cold climate” is the result of different factors such as micro racisms, lack of support for BAME students, “invisible” racism and stereotyping, which alienate students, thus negatively affecting their sense of belonging and making them more likely to drop out, and less likely to achieve 2:1 or First class marks and to pursue postgraduate studies. Led by Dr. Mazal Oaknín, Dr. Marga Navarrete, Dr. Alejandro Bolaños, Mr. Haydn Kirnon.

Student-led screening of SANTI and conversation with the film’s director (Nov 2022).

Organised by Dr Maria Chiara D’Argenio and the students of the UCL Spanish and Latin American Society.
