Oxford Brookes University has adopted equality, diversity and inclusion as core values and places all its policy development in the context of the objectives of:
- ensuring that all individuals who come into contact with the University, whether as employees, students or in other capacities, are treated with dignity and respect,
- ensuring that the opportunities the University provides for learning, personal development and employment are made available on a non-discriminatory basis,
- providing a safe, supportive and welcoming environment for students, staff and visitors.
The University seeks through all its policies and actions to be a genuinely inclusive organisation, and draws for this on good practice throughout the Higher Education sector and in the wider economy. The objective is to integrate the principles of equal treatment and promotion of diversity into all aspects of the University’s day-to-day life.
