Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

We're committed to ensuring we're a welcoming, inclusive and supportive School. We're dedicated to promoting this culture for all staff, students and visitors.

The School of Natural and Environmental Sciences is committed to promoting an inclusive culture in which students and staff from all backgrounds have a strong sense of belonging and can work creatively and innovatively to achieve their own and the School’s ambitions.

At the heart of developing an inclusive School culture is a commitment to attracting, supporting, developing and retaining talented staff and students from the full breadth of society. We are a global, outward looking School with a clear desire to increase diversity across all research and taught programme areas.

Whilst we are proud of our Athena Swan Bronze status, as well as recent strides in diversifying our academic staff, we understand that there is far more work to be done to build on our recent advancements. This website contains a summary of our Values and Standards and some recommended EDI reading, as well as links to key EDI related organisations and groups within the wider Newcastle University community, and a summary of the School EDI Committee’s members.

Use the Improving our School Report It Form to tell us of unacceptable behaviours. These include making someone feel uncomfortable, excluded or threatened based on a protected characteristic. If you would like a response, please include your email address.
