Celebrating Black Excellence in the Designed and Built Environment

Launched as part of Black History Month 365, the School of Architecture, Design and the Built Environment’s Celebrating Black Excellence series aims to explore the systemic and societal issues behind racial inequality and the attainment gap.

Led by the School’s Equality, Diversity and Inclusion committee, we hope these build a network beyond NTU and actively engage alumni, the wider industry and professional bodies.
