Equality at the University

Equality & Diversity

The University of Cambridge is committed in its pursuit of academic excellence to equality of opportunity and to a proactive and inclusive approach to equality, which supports and encourages all under-represented groups, promotes an inclusive culture, and values diversity.

Equality Champions

In 2009, the University approved the establishment of Equality Champions to demonstrate senior leadership and support for equality and diversity matters and initiatives. The Champions: support the progression of equality for all protected groups (including gender, sex, and sexual orientation); assist with the progression of equality objectives; advocate on equality and diversity matters; advise and contribute to papers and relevant processes; work with staff and student equality networks; provide a formal link to staff diversity networks; attend equalities-related events.
