If you were the College Provost for a day, what one thing would you do to make Imperial more diverse and inclusive?

I would talk to students in different locations on each of the College’s campuses all day in order to find out about their lived experiences and to learn more about their aspirations and struggles, how they are getting on at Imperial and how their education is helping them in life.
