Our commitment to Equality and Diversity and Inclusion

We are committed to Equality, Diversity and Inclusion for all students and employees. We aim to be an academic community founded where everyone is welcomed and respected.

In the UK, the equality standards to which we adhere are embodied in the 2010 Equality Act. The University for the Creative Arts (UCA) recognises that all forms of unlawful discrimination, harrsassment, bullying and victimisation are unacceptable. It is the aim of the University to ensure that no student, employee or job applicant receives less favourable facilities or treatment (either directly or indirectly) on the grounds of:-

  • Age
  • Disability
  • Gender / Gender Reassignment
  • Marriage / Civil Partnership
  • Pregnancy / Maternity
  • Race
  • Religion or Belief
  • Sex
  • Sexual Orientation

Furthermore, we are committed to being a diverse academic community that is inclusive of all students and we aim to support everyone at UCA to achieve their full potential.

Equality, Diversity & Inclusion (EDI) forms part of our induction procedures and we also offer training on EDI. Our equality policies and procedures are regularly under review. We maintain the effectiveness of our policies and procedures through Equality Impact Assessment, regular review and by monitoring staff and student data.
