Respect: creating a place where we can all flourish

Staff data

The charts below provide an overview of Durham University staff from the 2012/13 academic year up to 2018/19. They identify the trends in the population by gender and ethnicity for both Academic and Professional Services Staff; highlighting where progress has been made towards achieving a more diverse staff base, as well as areas where we require improvement. The data on ethnicity has been split into Black (includes mixed Black categories), AME (Asian and other Minority Ethnic groups) and White.

The overall demographic profile has seen the proportion of Black and White staff remain at a similar level since 2012/13, with a 1.3% increase in AME staff from 2012/13 to 2018/19.
