We are committed to creating and maintaining a community that promotes equality, values diversity and builds inclusion amongst all its staff and students.

We respect the rights and dignity of all those who work and study here, and we aim to ensure that the inclusive nature of our community is manifest throughout the College. We want it to be reflected in our physical spaces, our teaching, our structures of governance, our record as an employer, and the events we support.

Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (ED&I) initiatives in St Peter’s are led by the ED&I Forum, a group made up of academic staff, support staff, and members of the MCR and JCR. Its role is to develop projects within the College that promote equality, diversity and inclusion and to respond effectively to relevant public sector legislation.

These are some of the projects we have undertaken recently:

  • Evaluation of disability access to all communal College spaces and facilities, with a view to improving access to the College Library and other key locations;
  • ED&I training for all staff, and compulsory race awareness training for all student-facing and managerial staff;
  • Diversifying our portraiture project, to showcase the role of women and people of colour within the College and its history;
  • Improvements to signage and maps within College, including better signage of the gender-neutral toilets, disability access routes and baby-changing facilities.

Our Equality Policy and Action Plan can be found here.

Our gender pay gap reporting can be found on our Policies and Documents page.

The Chair of the Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Forum is Dr Albert Park.
