  • Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

    At Oxford Brookes, we are committed to ensuring the very best student experience where all our students can flourish in a culture of respect and support, where we celebrate difference and thrive on each other's success.

    Information about our activities to advance student equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) can be found on this site or by visiting the EDI web pages on the Human Resources website.

  • You can find out about current news, initiatives and events focused on Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI), and read Brookes’ EDI policies for staff and students, on the EDI web pages on the Human Resources website.

    Any form of bullying or harassment will not be tolerated. Examples include, but are not limited to, unwanted physical contact, personal insults or name-calling, sexual innuendo, coercion, constant unfounded criticism, unwanted intrusion, persistent patronising or excluding behaviour, and derogatory comments.

    You can talk to a member of Brookes Union, staff in Brookes Union Advice Centre, the EDI Adviser or other staff in Wellbeing, or your Student Support Co-ordinator. Bullying and harassment is a breach of the Student Conduct Regulations and you can raise a complaint which will be investigated via the University Disciplinary Procedure. 

    For help, visit the Bullying and harassment web page on the Student Disputes website.

    There are spaces set aside for prayer, contemplation and quiet on all Brookes campuses. See Prayer and quiet space on the Chaplaincy website for a complete list of locations.

    Brookes students have equality representation through various Brookes Union officers, including a Disabled Students’ Officer, an Ethnic Minority Officer, a LGBT Officer and a Women’s Officer. There is a Brookes Disability Action Society which aims to promote diversity and raise awareness of issues relating to disability in the University and beyond. More information can be found on their Facebook page

    There is also a LGBT Society, Islamic Society, Christian Union, Jewish Society and Mature Students Society, to name just a few. You can set up your own society or group through Brookes Union. Search the Clubs and societies page on the Brookes Union website to find out what’s available.
