Past event Part of series: Race Equality in Education

Race, higher education and special educational needs and disabilities

This event will provide an update on the report, and will be critiqued by a respondent. Delegates will also have the opportunity to ask questions throughout.

This pilot study drew on survey data of 224 students at a London-based university, with the aim of identifying ecological niches that might cause disadvantage and discrimination for Black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) students with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND).

Supported by BERA’s Small Grants Fund (SGF), the study specifically focused on bringing attention to differences between SEND (that is students who self-identify as having SEND) and non-SEND students’ experiences of microaggressive and explicit forms of racial prejudice and discrimination.
