Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

We are inclusive and collaborative, with equality,

We are inclusive and collaborative, with equality, diversity and inclusion informing all we do.

From our inclusive curriculum, to University-wide projects to prevent discrimination, and our commitment to wellbeing, we are agile and open to change to create a more inclusive environment for all.

A key part of our Strategy to 2031, equality, diversity and inclusion informs our research, teaching and engagement and is an important part of all three of our Themes. It’s also a big part of how we approach health and wellbeing.
