	Dear colleague,

	UNICA is proud to invite you to the following event:

	TOPIC: seminar on Equality and Diversity in Higher Education "Getting in, Getting on, Getting through",

	WHEN: September 27 to 28, 2007

	WHERE: Vrije Universiteit Brussel

	TARGET GROUP: administrative and academic staff dealing with equality and diversity implementation in their university

	ISSUES: What factors interact with ethnicity to affect participation at university? Why in some disciplines are minority ethnic students less likely to achieve a high class of degree? Why do they often do worse in the transition to the labour markets? Why are women still under represented in Science, Engineering and Technology? How accessible are universities to disabled students? What should universities be doing to address these and other equality  issues?

	Attached you will find:

	- invitation to the seminar

	- the registration form

	- draft program of the seminar

	The deadline for registration is August 24th. Due to an international event in Brussels the same dates as the UNICA seminar, it is extremely difficult to find hotel accommodation. We therefore highly recommend taking care of your hotel reservation as soon as possible. The Secretariat has prebooked 30 rooms in hotels mentioned in the registration form. Unfortunately we will not be able to help finding accommodation for those who book after  d eadline.

	Kind regards,

	On behalf of Kris Dejonckheere

	UNICA Secretary General
