Jaspal, Rusi – Perspectives: Policy and Practice in Higher Education, 2015
UK higher education (HE) has become increasingly diverse. Despite the clear social, economic and pedagogical benefits of diversity, it can also be challenging for identity as it may bring about psychological change and compel both the "dominant majority" and "minorities" to adjust to the presence, identities and worldviews of…

Birds, Rachel – Perspectives: Policy and Practice in Higher Education, 2012
Conversations with colleagues across the sector suggest that the use of mentoring as an organisational development tool in higher education (HE) is increasing.

Sabzalieva, Emma – Perspectives: Policy and Practice in Higher Education, 2012
