Decolonising the Curriculum

MDXSU are proud to support a diverse population of students at Middlesex University. However, the content of their courses does not always reflect them, and this needs to change.

Women, LGBT+, working class, disabled and BAME students are often vastly under-represented in the curricula and within academic ranks.

Our ‘decolonising the curriculum’ campaign aims to tackle these issues and work with the University to ensure our students are studying a curriculum that celebrates diversity and is inclusive of all.

How can I get involved? #DecoloniseYourCourse

We’re currently asking for feedback from students on the diversity of your programme’s reading list. We want to know how many texts on your reading lists are written by People of Colour, Black, Womxn and LBGT+ authors, and we need your help.

You can help us in three easy steps.

Step 1) Take a look at your reading list.

Step 2) Work out how many texts on your reading list have been written by Black, People of Colour, Womxn and LGBT+ authors.

Step 3) Tell us in the survey below.

If there are any specific books that you think are missing from the University library (particularly books written books by LGBT+, BAME, disabled or women authors) you can complete a 'request a book' form here

If you'd like to know more about this campaign and our plans for the year, please email
