Equality and Diversity - Policies and Information

The University is committed to equality of opportunity as outlined in our Strategic Plan.

We aim to attract, retain and motivate high quality individuals and to provide equality of opportunity in order to maximise the benefit to the University from the diversity of its workforce and student population. Diversity expresses itself in many ways - by age, gender, race, culture, physical and mental ability, religion - and these differences are celebrated.

We are committed to  maximising everyone’s potential by harnessing these differences and creating a productive environment in which all are valued; where our talents are fully utilised and organisational goals are achieved.

Our wide range of policies and schemes address equality and diversity issues for staff and you can access these below.
