Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

Diversity Contacts

To support the equality and diversity agenda, Durham has a network of Diversity Contacts in most Departments and Colleges. The Diversity Contact can assist staff and students with enquiries and provide information on University policies and sources of help and support. Their role is to act as a champion for Equality and Diversity within their area. For more information and an updated list of Diversity Contacts please contact the Equality and Diversity team. 

We are currently reviewing and updating the Diversity Contact Network and more information will be published soon.
