Equality and diversity
The School of Geography and Sustainable Development is committed to creating an inclusive environment that supports equality and diversity. The School aims to achieve fair and equal representation for all, enabling all members of staff and students to contribute and reach their full potential. All staff operate under the University’s Equality and Diversity Inclusion Policy.
The School is against any kind of discrimination and harassment on any basis, including but not limited to gender, race, ethnicity, religion, or sexual orientation. For more information on what constitutes bullying or harassment, please see the University’s advice and support web page.
Report and support
If you need to report or talk with someone about issues relating to equality and diversity, please get in touch with either Urska Demsar (Director of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion) or Keith Bennett (Head of School).
If you or someone you know has experienced bullying, discrimination, abuse, assault or harassment of any sort, you can also report such incidents anonymously using the University’s Report and Support tool, which is aligned to institutional policies. You can also choose to use this tool to report using your contact details so a member of staff can get in touch with you to help provide support. This tool can be used by students, members of staff, members of the public or visitors to the University.
