    A live panel discussion at UCL, 10 March, 2014

    There are just 85 black professors out of 18,510 in the UK and the number has barely changed in eight years. The percent of black professors (0.4%) shows a striking disparity with the proportion of black students, which has increased steadily each year and now stands at 6%.

    What does it mean when the generation that produces knowledge is so unrepresentative of the generation that consumes it? This panel debate will be chaired by Professor Michael Arthur, UCL President and Provost. It will aim to ask difficult questions and explore even more challenging solutions.

    Chair: Professor Michael Arthur, UCL President and Provost
    Nathan E. Richards, freelance digital journalist, doctoral researcher at Goldsmiths University and director of 'Absent from the Academy'
    Dr William Ackah, Birkbeck, University of London
    Dr Lisa Amanda Palmer, Newman University

    Dr Nathaniel Adam Tobias C̶o̶l̶e̶m̶a̶n̶, UCL
