Inclusion and equality are at the heart of everything we do. We are committed to enhancing diversity among our staff and students, promoting its positive impacts for all those who engage with us, and fostering an inclusive culture which provides equal opportunities for all.

We believe that everyone has the right to live, work and study in an environment free from bullying, harassment, victimisation and discrimination, in which they find dignity and respect for their differences, as well as recognition for their contributions.

Our Equality Policy sets out our approach to equal opportunities and holds us to account in the prevention of any form of discrimination within the College. We expect every member of our community to embrace these values, respect each other’s differences, and work with us to ensure that everyone can safely be themselves and participate fully in the life of the College.

EDI Committee

Our Equality, Diversity & Inclusion (EDI) Committee was established in 2023 to support the development of a diverse and inclusive College culture, in which every member of the community feels welcome, valued, and respected. It helps to ensure that all EDI principles and policies are communicated well, implemented appropriately, regularly reviewed and updated as needed.

The Committee is made up of key representatives from senior leadership, staff and students, including our Tinsley Outreach Officer, the HR Director and the Provost. A nominated member of the Governing Body acts as our Equalities Fellow. This role provides leadership, guidance and support to develop equality issues and also works to address student and staff concerns. Any member of the College is welcome to attend committee meetings and to contribute to its work.
