A University of Birmingham (2022) survey shows that one in four people in Britain feel negative towards Muslims. Furthermore, Islamophobia might contribute to the awarding gap, with less than two-thirds of Muslim students obtaining a first or 2:1 (Advance HE, 2020). The provision of a clear and well-understood definition of Islamophobia is essential if anti-Muslim hatred is to be challenged. This presentation will discuss the process of introspection, self-education, consultation, and dialogue that was undertaken at Buckinghamshire New University in creating and adopting a tailored definition of Islamophobia. The project engaged a diversity of stakeholders and fostered substantial learning across differences.
