Welcome to the Equalities Unit

The Equalities Unit provides the University with advice in equal opportunities with respect to both students and staff. It does this mainly through the Equality Public Duties that requires the University to proactively manage equal opportunities. The University's response to these duties is embodied in the University's Equal Opportunities Policy.

The Equalities Team supports staff and students to advance equality of opportunity, working collaboratively, with internal and external partners, to keep up to date with legislation and champion best practice. We will celebrate diversity success, support and challenge staff and students to embed diversity and inclusion, improving individual and organisational behaviour, driving cultural change.
