Equality and Diversity
We provide a safe and inclusive working environment for all staff and students and have a long-standing commitment to equality, diversity and respect. Our commitments are aligned with the University's equality strategy, available online.
Our accessible and inclusive learning policy puts equality and diversity at the heart of learning and teaching. We aim to provide equal opportunities to ensure that every member of our academic community can develop to their full potential.
Dignity and Respect
We have a zero tolerance stance towards any form of bullying or harassment. A wealth of guidance and information on the subject, alongside the University's dignity and respect policy, is available online.
We are committed to providing equal opportunities for all staff and students. We aim to promote a positive culture that celebrates difference, challenges prejudice and ensures fairness irrespective of gender.
The University of Edinburgh was the first Higher Education Institute in Scotland to receive a university-wide award under the Athena SWAN Charter, which aims to recognise the advancement of gender equality within higher education.
In recognition of the positive steps that our School has taken to promote diversity and gender equality among staff and students, Athena SWAN granted The School of Social and Political Science a Bronze Award in 2017.
Health and Wellbeing
We recognise that there are considerable benefits to be gained from taking a positive approach to health and wellbeing. We are therefore committed to developing a working environment that helps to improve the physical and mental health of our staff.
People+ is a School initiative that aims to strategically support career development within the School. We seek to offer solutions to the challenges of achieving equality, diversity, wellbeing, and a healthy work-life balance.
