Equality, diversity and inclusion

Equality, Diversity & Inclusion at the University of Plymouth

“An important part of our University is the value we place on being a diverse and inclusive community, where we learn and benefit from our rich variety of backgrounds and beliefs. This in part is why the University of Plymouth is such an enriching place to work and to study.”

Professor Judith Petts CBE

Vice-Chancellor and Chief Executive, University of Plymouth 

“The calendar offers week-by-week highlights of cultural and religious events that are important to staff across the institution. It is a really good reminder of the diversity that exists here in the University and the value we attach to an environment where all colleagues and students are respected regardless of their values or beliefs.”

Professor Bridie Kent
Executive Dean, Faculty of Health & Human Sciences

Reports and governance

The University has numerous requirements to share information and data on a wide-range of areas including the Gender Pay Gap, however, we aim to be as transparent as possible with our reporting and our actions to tackle issues raised.

As well as our annual Gender Pay Gap report we issue an Annual Equality Report and hold details of our successful Athena SWAN applications.
