The University's commitment to promoting equality, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) has created a vibrant community where people from all walks of life feel welcome and included.
"What impresses me the most about the University is its dedication to supporting its staff and students through a range of networks and initiatives. For example, our LGBT+ Network is incredibly active and hosts numerous social events throughout the year, providing a welcoming space for our LGBTQ+ community to connect and celebrate their diversity. It also offers opportunities for staff and students to get involved in shaping EDI initiatives, which has allowed me to feel like an active participant in creating a more inclusive workplace.
