Equality and Diversity

Durham University is committed to embracing diversity. We promote and maintain an inclusive work and study environment that enables all members of our University community to achieve their full potential. Consistent with the University-wide commitment, it is important that University Committees should reflect the true diversity of our University community and have a membership which brings with it a range of backgrounds, skills and knowledge to drive us forward as an organisation. By working together we can achieve our aims of eliminating discrimination and actively promoting equality and diversity for our staff and students in line with our University Strategy.
