Oxford Brookes University is committed to the advancement of equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI). It 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 wider economy with a view to integrating the principles of equal treatment and the promotion of diversity into all aspects of the University’s day-to-day life. This is articulated in our Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Policy.

The University takes an evidence-based approach to EDI and uses data to drive change and set priorities. These are articulated in our EDI Strategy 2018-2022.

EDI reporting

The EDI Advisory Group, chaired by the Vice Chancellor and reporting to the Vice-Chancellor's Group, is responsible for producing the University’s Annual EDI Report, recommendations for action, and developing and monitoring equality objectives and other requirements under the Public Sector Duty of the Equality Act 2010.
