The University is fully committed to equality for all its staff and students – people are at the heart of everything we do. The University’s vision is to create an inclusive culture which celebrates the diversity of the University’s staff and students. In recognising that this diversity brings new and engaging perspectives, and enriches the experience of all who work, study and visit the University we are taking a proactive approach to embedding and mainstreaming the principles of Equality and Diversity by:

  • Driving the agenda at the highest strategic level and throughout the University
  • Communicating the Equality and Diversity Vision and the University’s expectations widely to all staff and students
  • Challenging prejudice and discrimination
  • Sharing experiences and good practice
  • Educating staff and students on Equality and Diversity and their responsibilities to meet our legislative duties
  • Engaging staff and students on Equality and Diversity matters

We are developing and implementing a range of policies and procedures that promote equality and diversity to ensure our staff and students are treated fairly, and have equality of opportunity with us.

Much of the strength of a university education lies in the exposure of students to different perspectives from a diverse peer group. We are committed to continuously improving and reviewing our approach to widening access, developing student support services and nurturing the diverse learning environment which benefits all students.

All members of the Aberdeen family have a role in driving the University forward: our students and staff as they thrive in an environment which encourages and nurtures achievement, or as alumni with a lifelong relationship with their alma mater.
