Welcome to the University of Stirling’s Equality and Diversity webpages. The University of Stirling and the University of Stirling Students’ Union believes in equality for all.
What is equality?
Equality is ensuring individuals or groups of individuals are treated fairly and equally and no less favourably, specific to their needs, including areas of race, gender, disability, religion or belief, sexual orientation, age and any other relevant protected characteristic.
What is diversity?
Diversity aims to recognise, respect and value people’s differences to contribute and realise their full potential by promoting an inclusive culture for all staff and students.
Equality and Diversity at the University of Stirling
At the University of Stirling we are committed to promoting equality and diversity so that all staff, students and visitors to the University can be confident that they will be treated with dignity and respect.
We do not tolerate harassment, victimisation or unjustified discrimination on any of the grounds mentioned above. We aim to maintain a culture inclusive of all sections of society which is free from discrimination and unfair treatment.
Equality and diversity is promoted through a variety of initiatives, e.g. Equality Champions within each school, the establishment of an Equality Action Forum to drive forward the University’s equality activities and raise awareness of best practice and support in equality matters, a planned ‘One Stirling’ Campaign currently under development in collaboration with the Students’ Union.
