One of twelve projects funded by the NCSEHE, Capability, Belonging and Equity in Higher Education: Developing Inclusive Approaches builds on the approach of two recent UK projects led by Professor Burke and data from a CEEHE-funded pilot study conducted at UON in 2014. 

The 2015 project aims to understand the ways in which 'capability' is constructed by staff and students.

Outcomes of the project will include the development of state-of-the-art resources designed to support academic staff and equity practitioners in developing inclusive approaches.
