Diversity & equality explained

The University recognises there is more to equality than simply compliance. We not only want to be a fair employer; we want to create a creative and caring environment for our students and staff to study and work in.

A diverse workforce, with people from different racial, educational and social backgrounds and a range of ages, opens up a wealth of possibilities for the University of Southampton. It helps to encourage creativity and foster innovation, in turn enabling us to develop and grow towards our strategic ambitions.

Our Equality Plan was developed with the support of students and staff from all areas of the University, representing the cross-section of students and staff from various grades and career pathways for each of the diversity groups.

Further information and guidance about diversity and equality is available below and on the diversity website .
