Considering diversity, change and intervention: how the higher education curriculum looked in on itself

This paper broadly examines the development of diversity initiatives within the
higher education (HE) curriculum. It seeks to challenge the normative frameworks of HE
institutions in their curriculum development and delivery and encourages the university to
‘look in on itself’ to find solutions to the absences in BAME participation, retention and
achievement at the present date. Two case studies are used to illustrate possible research
and development initiatives, taking the viewpoint of the institution being the model for
change and not the student. Diversity issues are conceptually framed by using theories
around pedagogic practice, which are suggested as being both culturally and creatively
located. The conclusion works as a set of principles for intervention and change.
