Race Equality at Cambridge


Progressing race equality and tackling racism robustly is one of the University's key priorities.


In the words of our Vice-Chancellor, "Our University should be free from racism, discrimination, prejudice and harassment. Achieving this objective requires an honest acknowledgement of the detrimental impact that racism can have on the entire collegiate community".

The University has signed up to the national Race Equality Charter (REC) scheme and received the REC Bronze award in November 2019. We used the scheme as a helpful framework to address racism at Cambridge. University-wide data analysis and consultation allowed us to identify issues and determine priorities for action to address them.

The strong support of the University Race Equality and Inclusion Champions, Dr Mónica Moreno Figueroa and Dr Kamal Munir, is pivotal to the progress of this work. 


The summary of University's actions and issues we want to address can be found in the booklet 'Race Equality: A Plan for Action'

The University has developed a list of priorities and a three-year action plan to address the issues identified to date
