The Centre for Social Mobility

The Centre for Excellence in Widening Participation Research and Practice (CEW) brings together academics and professional colleagues who share an interest in enhancing research and practice in widening participation to higher education. 

The Centre for Social Mobility (CEW) exists to support thinking and practice around social mobility through education. We focus particularly on higher education. 

Our centre brings together academic faculty, professional service staff and students who share an interest in enhancing research and practice in widening participation policy and practice. 

Members of the Centre for Social Mobility share an interest in rigorous research and effective practice that supports students to progress into higher education, should they wish to do so, and also to achieve within higher education and beyond. We aim to support and enhance research and practice locally at the University of Exeter and our local communities, nationally, and internationally.
