Equality and Diversity
Our Commitment to Equality and Diversity and Inclusion
We are committed to Equality, Diversity and Inclusion for everyone in the UCA community. Our dedicated team ensures that everything we do is respectful, inclusive and fair.
Embodied in the 2010 Equality Act, UCA recognises and strongly upholds that all forms of unlawful discrimination, harassment, bullying and victimisation are unacceptable. We aim to ensure that no applicant, employee or student receives less favourable facilities or treatment (either directly or indirectly) on the grounds of age, disability, gender, gender reassignment, marriage, civil partnership, pregnancy, maternity, paternity, race, religion or belief, sex or sexual orientation
We greatly value a diverse academic community that is inclusive to all and supports everyone to achieve their full potential and we are continually reviewing how we work to ensure this is at the heart of all of our practices.
Equality, Diversity & Inclusion forms part of our induction procedures for staff and students, and we also offer training on EDI. Our equality policies and procedures are regularly reviewed, maintaining their effectiveness through Equality Impact Assessments.
