Realising our ambitions relating to equality, diversity, and inclusion add up to what we call institutional equity. Our Institutional Equity Strategy is founded upon the core principles of fostering inclusivity, promoting staff and student success, enhancing belonging, and promoting equitable culture and practice.

We are developing an dynamic approach to equality, diversity, and inclusion based around our Institutional Equity Strategy. Details of our policy commitments and action plans will be accessible through these pages as they are approved and adopted.

 

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.
