Our University is committed to providing a vibrant, ethical and sustainable working environment that values equality and diversity.
This commitment exists alongside our wider legal and moral obligations to provide an inclusive environment for our staff, students and members of the public who may be affected by our activities. The Equality and Diversity Committee considers the equality and diversity aspects of the University's culture and environment for work and study; acts as a forum for the engagement of staff and students in issues relating to equality and diversity; advises on the development of policies, procedures and practices directly relating to equality and diversity; monitors statistics and data that evidence the University's compliance with its regulatory duties as a public sector organisation; helps identify and develop areas of good practice; and promotes greater awareness of equality and diversity policies to ensure continuous improvement in University performance.
The Chair of the Equality and Diversity Committee is Professor Phil Cardew.
The Secretary is Pam McLaren.
