The College aims to provide an inclusive environment which promotes equality and values diversity – and is committed to maintaining an environment of dignity and respect where all staff and students can develop their full potential. The concept of equality is central to the College’s ethos of academic and service excellence.
This policy outlines the actions the College will take to identify and remove any barriers to accessing and participating in College as a student or staff member or service user.
The University promotes, and is committed to supporting, a collegiate environment for its staff, students and other community members, which is free from discrimination on any of the nine equality grounds (gender, religion, age, civil status, family status, disability, sexual orientation, race or ethnicity, membership of the Traveller community), bullying, sexual harassment and other forms of harassment.
This policy sets out a framework for the resolution of any dignity and respect matters that may arise from time to time and details the sources of help available to staff and students.
