School of Global Studies

Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

Our Commitment

The School of Global Studies actively challenges racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, ableism, and oppression in all its forms. We strive to be an inclusive and supportive space for all of our staff and students. 

As academics, students and professional service staff, we promote equality, diversity and inclusion across the range of our work – whether it be teaching, research, administrative work, and knowledge transfers with the communities that we work with.

Our priority areas include BAME recruitment, retention and progression, LGBTQ+ students and staff, gender pay gap, and mental health.
