New study with care-experienced academics

November 10th, 2022

Dr Neil Harrison at the University of Exeter is leading a new research study about care-experienced academics working in higher education in the UK.

The aim of the new study is to discover more about pathways into academic careers for care-experienced people, particularly focusing the role of school and university.  It will also be exploring how academic careers can require renegotiations of identity and the extent to which universities recognise and support their care-experienced staff.

If you are a care-experienced academic working in higher education in the UK, please consider completing a very short online questionnaire about your career experience so far. You can find a link to the survey below:

Take the survey here.

Colleagues are also being asked to share these details to any care-experienced academic staff or any relevant staff networks.

The study is funded by the British Academy and Leverhulme Trust Small Grants Programme.
