Widening Participation Special Interest Group

The WP-SIG is a coalition of staff working across the University of Sheffield on issues related to widening participation, fair access and the success and progression of students who are from groups that are under-represented in higher education. This includes work across the whole student life-cycle from outreach through to progression into graduate careers.

The SIG meets every month during term time for a working lunch and is an opportunity to discuss good practice (and challenges) in delivering this work. Meetings are a mixture of open discussion, networking, panel discussions and presentations on related topics.
