In order to drive societal change, higher education institutions must first address internally those same problems they want to solve in the outside world. In order to enable all individuals to realise their full potential regardless of their physical, racial, and socio-economic backgrounds, universities must first of all ensure that all students can thrive.
Despite the progress made, access and inclusion still have a long way to go. In the latest episode of the EAIE podcast, we are joined in conversation by John Delap, Diversity and Inclusion Project Analyst at Princeton University, to discuss how higher education institutions can identify and remedy existing biases and inequalities.
