One of the key findings of our previous evaluation was the widespread perception of the potential value added in HEIs by engagement with issues of religious faith at a time of economic and social stress. For example, working with faith groups institutions can provide a more religiously literate student experience, avoid expensive and divisive equality litigation, promote a culture of openness, trust and enquiry, and work in community partnerships to prevent the divisions which often arise when there is financial strain and high levels of unemployment.
These free workshops will explore the processes, impacts and experiences of developing strategy in relation to religion in higher education settings. There will also be opportunities to meet with counterparts in other institutions and in faith-related settings to exchange skills and learning and consider potential for partnership and networking around these issues.
Sessions will be held on:
- Equality and diversity
- Student experience
- Good campus relations
Confirmed speakers include:
- Professor Martin Stringer, Birmingham University
- Professor Adam Dinham, Goldsmiths, University of London
- Eileen Fry, Derby Multifaith Centre
- Rev’d Dr Jeremy Clines, Sheffield University
- Martha Shaw, Goldsmiths, University of London
