Welcome to the Equality & Diversity Unit
The Equality and Diversity Unit works in partnership with University bodies, academic divisions and departments, and the UAS to ensure that the University's goal of the pursuit of excellence goes hand in hand with ensuring freedom from discrimination and equality of opportunity.
The Unit has responsibility for delivering the key objectives of the equality schemes for race, disability and gender and for working to promote equality across all groups who share a protected characteristic (which also include sexual orientation, religion and belief, and age).
The Unit also works to promote awareness of equality and diversity issues among all members of the collegiate University. This includes developing the understanding of legislation, the positive duties to promote equality, and the research, teaching and outreach benefits of a diverse and inclusive academic community. Our webs site contains information about the networks and activities we support.
The EDU also supports the harassment advisors' network, as well as recruitment monitoring.
