Widening Participation Scholars Network
The University's Widening Participation Scholars are a network of academic and professional staff at the forefront of initiating, recognising and rewarding inclusive teaching enterprises. The University has provided a number of scholarships and grants over the past two years to aid staff in developing an understanding of inclusive teaching and sharing their knowledge with others.
The network provides professional development opportunities, and is designed to progress and support the Widening Participation Grants recipients.
The Widening Participation Grants program is one of the University's social inclusion activities to widen participation and diversify our student cohort, a priority of our strategic plan. The projects fall into three main categories:
- research on inclusion and exclusion
- Inclusive curriculum renewal
- community engagement for social inclusion partnerships.
This part of the website is for Widening Participation Scholars to access information about the projects, upcoming meetings, forms and templates and other useful items.
