UCL Access and Widening Participation


Black Lives Matter

By Lauren Sandhu, on 9 June 2020

UCL’s Access and Widening Participation Office believes Black Lives Matter. We stand in support and solidarity with our Black colleagues and young people that we work with.

Our team have been having a discussion about the resources that have been helpful to us. The following list is non-exhaustive and has been compiled by recommendations from the staff in our team. We would love to hear your recommendations too.
