Black History Month is a time to recognise, reflect, and celebrate the invaluable contribution of black people to British society. As part of the Black History Month talks available to staff and students, this webinar forms part of a series of talks from black colleagues who have a direct connection to the University of Cumbria. In this session Alende will unpack what social isolation can look like for minority students and identify some of the measures that universities can take to counter this, and promote inclusion. Studies show that loneliness is the equivalent to smoking 15 cigarettes a day on your health, which highlights why belonging is such an important issue with higher education.
