Rise in black profs stalls
THE proportion of black professors at UK universities has stalled at just 1%, Government data shows.
Figures published by the Higher Education Statistics Agency that just 160 out of 22,855 professors in 2020/21 were black.
Overall 11%, professors, were from minority ethnic backgrounds, while 82% were white.
University and College Union general secretary Jo Grady has previously described the pace of change as “glacial”.
