Race equality

At the University of Surrey, we value and celebrate the racial and ethnic diversity within our community and are committed to being an anti-racist institution. Our goal is to promote equitable opportunities and outcomes for all our staff and students, and we have a zero tolerance to racism and discrimination of any kind. 

We are focusing heavily on improving race equality Surrey. We hold a bronze award (awarded in July 2022) and are focusing on the implementation of our action plan. We are working to develop our inclusive and supportive culture that celebrates all students and staff from all ethnic groups.
