Advancing equality and diversity in universities and colleges


Providing support

How to support specific groups of staff and students

  • Disabled people

    People with impairments may face barriers to education and employment in HEIs. Providing support and adjustments can remove these barriers and therefore support the development of an inclusive environment

  • Lesbian, gay and bisexual people

    HEIs can make a significant difference to the lives of their lesbian, gay and bisexual (LGB) staff and students by adopting a clear approach to LGB equality and providing appropriate support

  • Religion and belief

    Supporting the practice and expression of religion and belief among staff and students

  • International staff and students

    Develop an inclusive environment for international staff and students

  • Trans people

    There are growing numbers of trans people working and learning in higher education institutions and colleges. Ensure your institution is inclusive and provides appropriate support

  • Mental health

    Very few staff and students have disclosed a mental health condition to their HEI or college. Make sure your university or college has an inclusive environment
