University equality

A piece on University World News about one of the MCO principles

The new Magna Charta Universitatum 2020 states the following:

'Universities acknowledge that individuals and communities, often due to inequitable circumstances, have difficulty gaining access to higher education or influencing the modes and matter of academic study. To realise human potential everywhere, universities deliberately seek ways to welcome and engage with diverse voices and perspectives.'

Read the article by Graeme Atherton on University World News, about HE inequality:

The MCO works with WAHED, the World Access to Higher Education Day organisation, and on 29 October we were pleased to co-host an on-line discussion with them entitled ‘Building Back Better – can we make access to higher education across the world more equitable after the pandemic?’ Recording will be soon online. Stay tuned!
