Apply for the Diversity Mark award

If you are diversifying your reading list you can apply for the Diversity Mark award. You can get support in achieving this award from your Liaison Librarian and the Student Success Team.

The award is given to individual convenors or schools that undergo a process of review and reflection with their students, to ensure that they have considered authors and perspectives from divergent backgrounds such as race, gender, sexuality, disability, internationalisation and socio-economic contexts within their discipline.

This award will be visible in Moodle and will indicate to enrolled students, or those considering enrolment to a particular module, that diverse resources are represented in the module reading list.

Criteria for receiving the award, are to provide evidence that:

  • the reading list has had diverse and inclusive resources added
  • student feedback has informed the process
  • there will be continued practice in developing your teaching and learning resources
