Equality & Diversity Exec Laila shows support for new Access & Student Success Strategy

Your Equality and Diversity Officer Laila Fletcher has voiced her support for the University’s Access and Student Success Strategy launched on 27 November in a Leeds Conversation event.

The strategy – which was developed in consultation with stakeholders including student representative Laila – lays out the University’s vision to make the University of Leeds “a place where students from diverse backgrounds feel they belong, can thrive, and are valued for their unique contribution”.

Laila said: “I’m really happy to be supporting the Student Success Strategy, because it has a focus on empowering our students from underrepresented backgrounds to feel welcomed, supported and valued at Leeds. The strategy has a focus on mature students and those from low participation neighbourhoods and ethinic minorities”.
