Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

Our Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Vision
Being an international, research-led University relies on equality in participation, progression and success for all. We will create a working, learning, social and living environment that will enable all our staff and students to achieve their potential, whilst they experience and celebrate diverse cultures, knowledge and identities and are encouraged to make a positive contribution to the city, region and beyond.

Our commitment to Equality, Diversity & Inclusion
We will work together to create a University community where diversity is recognised, valued and celebrated. We will proactively advance equality and inclusive practice in our staff and student recruitment and admissions processes, in our research activity, in our teaching, within the campus environment and in the experiences we offer to all our academic and professional services and the student community.
