Closing our gap

At Canterbury Christ Church University we value diversity and believe that everyone deserves an equal opportunity to succeed. Equality, diversity and inclusion are central to our ethos and underpin everything that we do.

Closing Our Gap is our campaign to share how our University is working to reduce the attainment gap between white students and BAME students through our inclusive curriculum, academic research and the engagement opportunities that are available to students, staff and our wider academic community.
