Jane Dickinson

I am responsible for leading on recruitment and widening participation activities for the Faculty of the Environment. I work across the Social Sciences and STEM outreach teams at the University of Leeds

As part of my role I work in collaboration with academics and student volunteers across the School of Geography, the School of Earth & Environment, and the School of Food Science & Nutrition to provide a range of outreach activities and taster sessions. I run a number of targeted programmes and projects aimed at supporting students from under represented groups access and succeed in Environment, Food Science and Geosciences related courses.  I also help contribute to the range of academic taster sessions that form part of the Reach for Excellence programme and collaborate on projects with local schools and colleges.
