Engaging to understand: Black History Month in International Education

“People don’t really see that part of Cambridge, they see the prestige of Cambridge, but part of that prestige of Cambridge is its commitment to this kind of democracy, of all of our students, all of our children having access to a curriculum that’s going to set them up for success.” – Dr Zina Evans.

In celebration of Black History Month in the UK, the Head of Equality, Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging for International Education at Cambridge, Dr Lilian Dogiama held a dialogue with Dr Zina Evans, a Cambridge Strategic Higher Education Advisory Council (SHEAC) board member to discuss some of the barriers that keep young people from accessing a quality education and achieving their potential. Dr Evans is also the Senior Vice President for Higher Education Strategy, Enrollment, and Student Success at the Partnership for Education Advancement in the US.

Their conversation ranges from empowering young black students, representation and visibility in education, as well as Cambridge’s presence in the US to widen access to education.
