Equality and Diversity

Equality and Diversity

At UEL we are committed to working together to build a learning community founded on equality of opportunity - a learning community which celebrates the rich diversity of our student and staff populations.

UEL’s Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) strategy sets out a framework to deliver an environment and culture that is truly inclusive where:

  • all individuals have equality of opportunity to succeed, and
  • the diversity of the UEL community is valued, celebrated and staff and students are supported to be the best they can be.

UEL has achieved Athena SWAN Bronze status and we are working towards our Race Equality Charter Mark submission. Our EDI strategy and policies can be found below:

UEL Staff can access ED&I intranet page.

International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) definition of antisemitism

Antisemitism is a certain perception of Jews, which may be expressed as hatred toward Jews. Rhetorical and physical manifestations of antisemitism are directed toward Jewish or non-Jewish individuals and/or their property, toward Jewish community institutions and religious facilities.

The University of East London has a zero-tolerance policy of any form of discrimination or harassment and is committed to supporting both a diverse and inclusive culture for students and staff alike. The University is a respectful and broad-minded environment where antisemitism, racism or hate speech of any form will not be tolerated. We recognise that progressing equality requires long-term institutional change and the University is continuing its work in this area to improve the representation, progression and success of all marginalised and under-represented staff and students within higher education. Freedom of expression is also an integral part of our values and the University remains committed to promoting and protecting free speech. The ability to rigorously discuss and challenge ideas is a full part of the University’s work.
