Black History Month (BHM) is an annual celebration of the successes and achievements of the black community and a time for marking the positive impact on society.

Nottingham Trent University (NTU) marks this opportunity via a season of events and activities.

A year-round commitment

A series of exciting events and activities are run by NTU throughout Black History Month, continuing throughout the academic year, to celebrate historical black figures who have helped make Britain the diverse society it is today. 

Nottingham Trent University recognises that the Black history experience is not limited to one month each year, and has made a commitment to work year-round to host a programme of events, resources and campaigns to help create a more equal future for everyone. 

From film screenings and reading and writing workshops, to samba drumming and music talks, there is a wide range of activity for participants from all backgrounds, orientations, ages and abilities.

A diverse, fair and equal environment 

As a university and alongside the Nottingham Trent Students’ Union (NTSU), the University is firmly committed to sustaining a highly effective learning and working environment characterised by fairness, equality of opportunity and the valuing of diversity.

For example, its African Caribbean Society aims to educate and unite diverse students from NTU and the University of Nottingham, and The New Black Society strives to bring together a community of like-minded people with a progressive mentality to succeed in the face of adversity.

The NTSU also conducted a research project earlier in the year regarding the experience of black students at NTU, which resulted in a position paper on the black attainment gap.

The University also holds and is continually advancing its work in Race Equality Agenda, Athena Swan Bronze Award (gender equality), Stonewall Diversity Champion (LGBT), and Disability Confident Employer.

Join a university committed to tackling inequality

As a university, NTU is proud to be a progressive and inclusive university, and everyone has a part to play in tackling racism.

Vice-Chancellor Professor Edward Peck explains the action NTU takes to continuously improve its knowledge, understanding and approach to racial equality.
