Equality, diversity and inclusion

The University of St Andrews is committed to promoting a culture of inclusivity and to equality of opportunity for all of its staff and students. Equality, diversity and inclusion is a core pillar in the University Strategy.

"As a truly international university, our ambition is to be a beacon of inclusivity. We will achieve this through an approach that empowers our whole community and involves a determined shift in culture. Inclusivity will inform all of our policies and practices."
The Principal, Professor Sally Mapstone

At St Andrews, we see diversity as a strength and value the rich variety of backgrounds, identities and experiences of our staff, students and alumni. We are committed to strengthening our ethos and are proud of the journey so far, while also recognising that there is still work to be done.

Celebrating diversity

We are committed to creating an inclusive study and work environment for all. Our diversity calendar can be used to raise your own awareness of equality and inclusion and to help plan events and initiatives in an inclusive way.
