Principal’s message on inclusivity at the University:

‘As a truly international and world-class university, our ambition is to be a beacon of inclusivity. We will achieve this through an approach that empowers our whole community – through a combination of deliberate steps sponsored by the University’s leadership and a determined shift in culture that makes sure everyone is embraced, from students, academic and professional staff, to our alumni. Inclusivity will inform and affect policy and practice across the piece. We do this because it is right but also because diverse organisations work smarter, encourage innovation, and maximise the creativity that is fundamental to academic excellence.’
