Culture of Equality, Diversity & Inclusion

Our Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Strategy sets out our approach to equality, diversity and inclusion for the next four years (2017 to 2021).  It is a public declaration of our commitment to develop a community that is fully inclusive, recruiting and retaining staff and students from all sectors of society.

Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Strategy 2017-2021

The new Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Governance Structure was launched at the Equalities Summit in March 2017.
