We all deserve to be treated with dignity and respect. This should go
without saying. But more than just being the right thing to do, respecting others is enshrined in law and University policies.
Our new e-Learning course aims to provide students with the fundamental basis for understanding issues around equality, diversity and inclusion within higher education and will equip students with practical tools to challenge discriminatory behaviour and to interact with other students in an inclusive and supportive way.
The course is aimed at all students and complements our other support in the area of tackling discrimination and race inequalities.
The course has been co-created with the University of Surrey.
By undertaking the course students will:
- be provided with the fundamental basis for understanding issues around equality, diversity and inclusion in higher education
- gain awareness and understanding of equality, diversity and inclusion at the individual and institutional level
- be encouraged to develop self-awareness of EDI challenges, reflect on privileges and understand the impact of their behaviours and how they interact with others
- be equipped with practical tools to help them to have confidence to interact in an inclusive and supportive way with other students and to challenge discriminatory practices if they come across them.
