Equality Challenge Survey

The Equality Challenge Unit (http://www.ecu.ac.uk/) is currently canvassing for respondents for a survey for Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender experiences of higher education. It’s available at http://www.equalsurvey.co.uk/

It’s open to all staff and students across all Higher Education establishments.  To quote from the Open University news item associated with the survey.

The research will identify any barriers or other issues specifically affecting LGB&T staff and students. The research findings, due to be published in March 2009, will establish whether the higher education sector needs to take further action to engage with and support LGB&T people.

Academics, managers, representatives of the Universities and Colleges Employers Association, the trade unions, NUS, HEFCE, Universities Personnel Association, the Equality and Human Rights Commission, Stonewall and Press for Change have all been involved in the production of the survey.

The survey is available until 14 November 2008 Mid December.
