Sources of equality data

There is a wide range of equality data available to inform decision-making. The EDU summarises much of this data on an annual basis for publication in the University’s Equality Report.

University and college data are separate, though with many overlaps, e.g. in relation to joint appointments, and student admissions and attainment. Workforce data on joint appointments is collected by the University.
