Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Team

The School has established a strong and functional self-assessment team (SAT). The goal is to advance a wider range of equality topics.

The team undertakes a thorough and constant self-assessment which includes:

  • Identifying challenges and opportunities with regard to equality, diversity and inclusion, and responding to them
  • Evaluating policies, practices and activities
  • Establishing equality-based priority areas
  • Developing action plans and monitoring and evaluating the effectiveness of actions undertaken

Each individual feels passionate about equality, diversity and inclusion activities and is committed to making an impact within the Faculty of Science and Engineering.
