Equality, Diversity and Inclusion
Sunderland was recently named University of the Year for Social Inclusion (The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2021).
Inclusivity is a value at the heart of the University strategy, expressing our commitment to Equality, Diversity, Inclusion and Social Responsibility (EDISR).
EDISR is intrinsic to everything we do as a University and to every aspect of our student and staff experience, including who we attract to study and work here, their experiences and opportunities to achieve and the impact they have in the future.
The University believes that everybody should be treated with equality and dignity and it is our civic duty to have practices that add value beyond compliance with equality legislation.
