Dear Colleagues,

I am writing to invite you to participate in, and / or distribute, a research study that I hope you can all relate to - How are Academics Thought of by Society?  We want to understand this from an equality and diversity perspective as well as cross-culturally.  Please see participation details below and feel free to share with your personal and professional networks (it’s important to get perspectives from non-academics as well!).


Universities are “a gendered space where white middle class men prevail as the norm and majority”
"An academic is like a bad dinner guest.” (*Sever et al., 2021)

Help us understand how society views academics by taking part in an online survey.

We want to hear from everyone, from all walks of life, so please consider taking part and / or sharing the link with people you know.
