Equality, Diversity and Inclusion
We welcome all students and staff at the University of Nottingham. You help make our talented University community what it is, we are delighted that you are with us and we are committed to ensuring you continue to feel part of our community throughout your studies or work.
We strive to provide you with an inclusive, respectful and considerate environment where you can be yourself and are encouraged to perform to the best of your ability.
We aim to ensure that:
- All students and staff feel comfortable, safe, included, and supported to be their very best in all that they do
- The University is the best it can be, with a high performing and diverse staff and student body
- All students and staff visibly contribute to the values of the University and its wider impact
In order to achieve our goals and values we aim to attract, recruit and retain students and staff from the widest available pool of individuals from all groups within the community. We will encourage and support you in reaching your potential.
Our approach to equality, diversity and inclusion builds on the Equality Act 2010 to ensure freedom from discrimination on the grounds of race, nationality, ethnicity, gender identity, marriage or civil partnership status, disability, sexual orientation, religious, spiritual or political beliefs, age, caring responsibilities, pregnancy and parental status. We also aim to ensure that we support individuals with caring responsibilities, those from all socio-economic backgrounds, and those experiencing short-term health impairments.
We aim to take a holistic approach, ensuring that all that we do which is motivated by our goals around equality, diversity and inclusion contribute to a better environment for work and study for all. Our commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion is closely aligned to a wider aim to support the health and wellbeing of our all of our staff and students. Every student, and every member of staff at the University of Nottingham, irrespective of job role or level, has a critical role to play in the life of the University.
