Equality and Diversity

Vice Chancellor's message

The University of Sussex believes that the diversity of its staff and student community is fundamental to creative thinking, pedagogic innovation, intellectual challenge, and the interdisciplinary approach to research and learning.

We are committed to providing an environment for work and study that advances equality of opportunity. Our aim is to remove barriers to progression and success and to promote understanding and awareness of diversity issues to all members of the University community. We are all responsible for ensuring that staff, students and visitors to the University of Sussex are treated with fairness, dignity and respect.
