Dr Neil Harrison at the University of Exeter is leading a new research study about care-experienced academics working in higher education in the UK.
The aim of the new study is to discover more about pathways into academic careers for care-experienced people, particularly focusing the role of school and university. It will also be exploring how academic careers can require renegotiations of identity and the extent to which universities recognise and support their care-experienced staff.
If you are a care-experienced academic working in higher education in the UK, Neil would be very grateful if you could complete a very short online questionnaire about your career experience so far: https://exeterssis.eu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_3V6OtJsVham4Ffw.
Neil would also be grateful if you could pass on these details to any care-experienced academic staff that you might know or share them with any relevant staff networks in your institution.
The study is funded by the British Academy and Leverhulme Trust Small Grants Programme and you can find out more about it here: https://socialsciences.exeter.ac.uk/education/research/projects/care-experienced-academics.
