Equality and Diversity
As part of its Equality Policy the University of Oxford aims to provide an inclusive environment which promotes equality, values diversity and maintains a working, learning and social environment in which the rights and dignity of all its staff and students are respected to assist them in reaching their full potential.
The University will work to remove any barriers which might deter people of the highest potential and ability from applying to Oxford, either as staff or students.
All members of the University must comply with the University’s Equality policy. There are also various resources available to help you to develop your knowledge of equality and diversity issues which will, in turn, help you to integrate equality and diversity into your work.
