Equalities and Diversity at UCL

contact: Sarah Guise, Head of Equalities and Diversity


UCL has placed a high value on inclusivity and diversity since its inception in 1826, when it became the first English University to admit students regardless of their race, class or religion and also the first to admit men and women on an equal basis.

The egalitarian tradition continues today. The university is committed to developing and maintaining an institution where students from all backgrounds can flourish. It recognises the importance of equality of opportunity and promoting diversity.

UCL's equalities and diversity strategy, policies and projects cover age, disability, gender, sexual orientation, race, religion and belief and transgender people.

The Equalities and Diversity website is an information resource for staff and students at UCL and contains links to UCL’s strategy and action plan as well as detailed information about harassment and bullying, Departmental Equal Opportunities Liaison Officers (DEOLOs), equalities training opportunities and events.
