Equality, diversity and inclusivity

Our Collaborative Enhancement Projects offer funding opportunities for small groups of our member institutions to work together on projects of shared interest which enhance the quality of their own students' learning experiences and develop outputs to support the wider higher education sector. 

QAA supports a number of projects every year, covering a range of topics and interest areas. On this page you'll find projects related to equality, diversity and inclusivity.
