Equality, Diversity and Inclusion - objectives and reports

Our equality policies apply to our staff and students and are for everyone, whatever their backgrounds or personal beliefs. Everyone at Anglia Ruskin is expected to comply with them.

We welcome any information that will help us to maintain a culture of dignity, courtesy and respect in all areas of our work.

Equality Act 2010

The Equality Act 2010 requires us to publish information about how we are working to ensure we fulfil the general duties of the Act. We are also required to set one or more equality objectives every four years. On this page you'll find our current objectives and reports.

Equality, diversity and inclusion objectives

We aim to create a more inclusive and successful learning community for our students and staff by increasing our focus on equality and diversity.

In order to achieve this, we've developed five EDI objectives to work on from 2016 to 2020.

  • Working in partnership with colleagues across our university to identify, monitor and address differential patterns across the protected characteristics in the recruitment, progression and achievement of our staff and students.
  • Celebrating, communicating and promoting equality, diversity and inclusion.
  • Embedding good equality, diversity and inclusion practice into our daily activities and decision making processes.
  • Promoting and embedding inclusive learning, teaching and assessment.
  • Promoting equality, diversity and inclusion in our institutional research activity.
