Abstract

Recent resurgence of the Black Lives Matter movement across the world is a reminder for HE institutions that we have a key role to play in enabling that our graduates are competent in creating and delivering effective social change. This needs for us to move on from creating awareness of social issues to equipping our students to create and deliver social action. Education and measurement are key in helping us achieve this.
