Changing Mindsets at the University of Portsmouth

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned reportpeer-review


The primary target group for this intervention was POLAR3, Quintile1 (P3/Q1) widening participation and BME students, where a recognised attainment gap exists, with expected benefits for other groups at risk of stereotype threat and unconscious bias (e.g. based on gender, age, disability). Four partners joined the University of Portsmouth in the delivery of this project: University of the Arts London (UAL), University of Brighton, University of Sussex and the University of Winchester. Each embedded the intervention within student induction (student peer led workshops) and staff development sessions in a selection of academic schools/colleges.
