The University's Equality Policy provides for an inclusive environment, which 'promotes equality, values diversity and maintains a working, learning and social environment in which the rights and dignity of all its staff and students are respected.'' It also provides that no student or member of staff will be treated less favourably on the grounds race.

The Equality Act 2010 provides the framework for the University's Race Equality Scheme. In addition the Race Relations (Amendment) Act 2000 imposes some specific duties: to assess the impact of policies on ethnic minority students and staff; to monitor their recruitment and progress; and to set out arrangements for publishing the results of impact assessments and monitoring.
