Equality and Diversity

The University of Surrey recognises the wealth of benefits to be gained from a diverse national and international University community in which every individual contribution is valued. It is committed to creating an environment where people are treated fairly and with respect and are able to work, study and contribute their individual talents to their maximum potential.

As a forward thinking community, the University encourages us all to reflect upon and be mindful of issues relating to equality and diversity and to think about how the impact of what we say and do reflects on others.
