This commentary examines the profile of Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) student and staff in contemporary UK Geography. National data from HESA and other studies on ethnicity in academia are used to provide an overview of diversity and equality issues affecting UK-based Geography Departments. The findings from the data analysis highlight the predominant ‘whiteness’ of the discipline when compared to the number of BME student and staff, in turn raising troubling equality and diversity issues.
