Event description

Description

UCD Access & Lifelong Learning is delighted to launch the UCD Access Symposium 2017. This event will discuss, celebrate and showcase widening participation to higher education.

Events include:

Keynote - Professor Diane Reay, University of Cambridge. This is a wonderful opportunity to hear one of the key voices in sociology. Professor Diane Reay is an educational sociologist working in the University of Cambridge. She grew up in the North of England and was the daughter of a coal miner. She was the first generation in her family to attend university. Her research includes boys' underachievement, higher education access, female management in schools, and pupil peer group cultures. Reay’s research has a made a significant contribution to our understanding of educational disadvantage and social justice issues. Her scholarship is both provocative and important.
