EQUALITY AND DIVERSITY

Diversity

 

All Universities promote and value diversity within both its staff and student bodies. Equal opportunity policies are in place to encourage an equal and fair environment in which to study or work. These documents are available from the institution of your choice.

Aston University is committed to equality and celebrates diversity. This commitment applies to all parts of its work and to both staff and students. Our culture is one that promotes respect for the whole university community.  As an employer, the university works hard to ensure that its employment policies and practices are fair and equitable and that it encourages a good working environment for all staff. As a Higher Education provider its focus is on widening participation while maintaining high standards for all. We strive to enable students, whatever their background, to develop as critical, reflective learners who will make a difference in the global workforce.

Aston University reviews its policies, procedures and teaching programmes regularly and seeks the views of staff and students to ensure that quality and equality are central to its activities.
