Strategy and Action Plan


The University has an Equality Strategy which sets out how we intend to meet our statutory duties under the Equality Act 2010. The strategy was produced in consultation with staff, students and stakeholders and was approved by the Executive team and Governing Council in 2017.

Action Plan

The Equality and Diversity Committee has, throughconsultation, produced a top level action plan to support this strategy which will be adapted by all Faculties and Departments to implement appropriate actions in their area. The Equality and Diversity Committee will report on the progress of meeting the actions through its annual report each year.

Previous Equality Strategies

Before we produced our current equality scheme, we were required to have three separate schemes and action plans for disability, race and gender. In addition, we produced a scheme for age and religion and were working on a sexual orientation scheme before we decided to join them together as one.
