UCU is running a survey in collaboration with colleagues in Kent and at Sussex on LGBT+ experiences in HE.
The aim of this survey is to provide a listening space for LGBT+ voices covering a wide range of areas within higher education institutions in the UK to address concerns about marginalised or excluded LGBT+ people, perspectives, teaching and research in higher education institutions.
UCU research and policy demonstrates considerable reason for concern about the position LGBT+ workers find themselves in within higher education institutions. Pride and Prejudice in Education (2016) reported that whilst many organisations had policies that included LGBT+ inclusivity these were not implemented effectively.
Members who identify as part of the LGBT+ community are encouraged to participate in the survey by following the link or by using the QR code.
The survey closes on the 12th of October.
