The Equality Act 2010 outlaws discrimination on
the basis of religion and belief. The legislation is broad in that it includes
those who do not have a religion/belief. The term religion/belief covers
mainstream religions and beliefs as well as those that are currently less well
recognised, including philosophical beliefs such as vivisection.
Political beliefs however are not covered. The law makes illegal any form
of prohibited conduct in relation to religion and belief (including
discrimination, harassment and victimisation) and requires the University as
a public body to advance equality of opportunity between people of
different religions and beliefs.
Oxford Brookes celebrates and values the diversity provided
by individual members of the University community and aims to create an
environment where the cultural, religious and non-religious beliefs of all are
respected. Further guidance is
contained in the University’s Religion and Belief Policy.
The University has a Multi-faith
Chaplaincy which offers friendship and spiritual care to members of the
Oxford Brookes’ community from any faith tradition or none. Further information is available on the
Multi-faith Chaplaincy web pages. The
University has also set up a Multi-faith Advisory Board, chaired by the Head
of Wellbeing, which has responsibility for the multi-faith dimensions of the
work of the Chaplaincy.
The Chaplaincy has strong links with faith and community
groups within the Oxford area. The
Chaplaincy also offers quiet space and prayer rooms around the campus.
