Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) are vital for our student and staff community (including all apprentices studying with us). We support a wide variety of activities, from short-term working groups focused on specific issues to wider initiatives to help develop training for all staff. The Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Equality, Diversity and Inclusion and People, Professor Katherine Linehan, is responsible for helping shape our EDI and People strategy, and ensure that best practice is shared with everyone.
