Equality, diversity and inclusion

The School of Philosophical, Anthropological, and Film Studies is determined to actively support equality and fairness irrespective of race, ethnicity, disability, age, faith, gender or sexual orientation. It is working to eradicate any explicit or implicit discrimination of staff and students on the basis of these differences, and to create an environment that is welcoming and inclusive to everyone.

Issues of equality, diversity, and inclusion are addressed by the School Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion Committee.

If you have any thoughts, ideas, or concerns about equality, diversity, or inclusion in the School, please contact the EDI Officer or any member of the committee. They would be very happy to hear from you no matter what your role in the School; they value feedback from undergraduate and postgraduate students, and academic and professional services staff alike. You can also contact the University’s EDI Office at diversity@st-andrews.ac.uk.

If you are interested in joining the EDI Committee, please contact the EDI Officer. The School strives to maintain a broad, inclusive, and representative committee, and would welcome expressions of interest. 

You can read detailed information about the EDI Committee’s current and planned activities (based on its Athena SWAN Action Plan). 

The University's EDI Office has a useful website, which includes links to University policies, networks, and events, and further information about diversity in the University. 

Report and support

If you or someone you know has experienced bullying, discrimination, abuse, assault or harassment of any sort, you can 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. Find out more about how Report and Support works.
