Cultural understanding in leadership & management (CULM)

CULM is an organisational development programme which aims to enhance the diversity competence of leaders and management at the University.

It offers individual senior managers the opportunity to learn more about the world view of members of staff whose background is different to their own.

Learning partnership programme

The learning partnership programme partners University staff with students to learn about world views different from their own.

Members of minority groups often find it more difficult to establish the kind of relationship with senior and middle managers that leads to a mutual understanding. This programme aims to address this imbalance by creating partnerships that are based on shared values, understanding and growth.
