Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

We fully endorse Cardiff Universities ethos on Equality, Diversity, Inclusion and Anti-Racism and encompass these values in all practices and policies.

“Our aim is to establish an inclusive culture free from discrimination and based upon the values of dignity, courtesy, and respect. We recognise the right of every person to be treated in accordance with these values.”

The Equality, Diversity, Inclusion and Anti-Racism hub at Cardiff was set up earlier this year (2023) to embed equality, diversity, inclusion, and anti-racism at all levels of the university. Cardiff University is also in the process of pursuing University of Sanctuary status, an initiative that recognises the good practice of universities in welcoming, supporting and empowering people seeking sanctuary.

This status promotes a culture of welcome and brings together existing work to support forced migrants and asylum seekers, as well as further develop support for displaced individuals.
