Race and ethnicity
The School of Psychology and Neuroscience is committed to creating an inclusive culture and environment where individuals are able to thrive irrespective of their race or ethnicity. The School acknowledges that Black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) students and staff are under-represented in many academic settings and can face prejudice and discrimination. It is the School's goal to provide a supportive, equitable and welcoming environment for all.
The University has a number of student societies that are relevant to BAME communities and has a BAME mentoring scheme for students. The University's Race, Ethnicity, Religion and Belief Equality Group is working on future actions to improve our inclusivity and diversity.
The University has a Staff BAME network and has a selection of BAME Staff Profiles. The University can provide support for BAME staff to attend Advance HE’s Diversifying Leadership programme.
The School and University do not tolerate harassment, bullying or intimidation, and the University has clear sets of guidelines on bullying and harassment for students and staff. To report any incidents of bullying, harassment or abuse (either anonymously or using your contact details), please use the University’s Report and Support tool.
