Equality, diversity and inclusion

The University and the School are committed to supporting equality and diversity in all aspects of their activity. Everyone has the right to study and work in a supportive and tolerant environment free from discrimination and harassment, regardless of race, religion, disability, ethnicity, or sexual identity or orientation. 

All staff operate under the University’s equality, diversity and inclusion policy.

Faith commitment is too often the forgotten aspect of equality and diversity, despite being accorded the same status as gender and disability in every significant statement of human rights. The School has a historic identity as a Christian School of Divinity. Nonetheless, its teaching and community seek to support and encourage persons of all faiths and none on an equal basis. The School encourages faith literacy in all of its activities and advises the University and external organisations on faith literacy issues.

The School offers accessible teaching space in its historic buildings, and, together with the University, aims to support students with disabilities

The School strives to enable talented students from disadvantaged backgrounds and developing countries to attend through scholarships and hardship funds.
