UCL EQUAL OPPORTUNITY POLICY STATEMENT
UCL's equal opportunity policy is that in the recruitment, selection, education and assessment of students, and in the recruitment, selection, training, appraisal, development and promotion of staff, the only consideration must be that the individual meets, or is likely to meet the requirements of the programme or course or post.
The requirements being met, no student or employee will be discriminated against on the basis of their sex, sexual orientation, race, colour, ethnic origin, nationality, disability, marital or civil partnership status, gender reassignment, pregnancy and maternity, caring or parental responsibilities, age, or beliefs on matters such as religion and politics.
UCL is committed to provide a learning, working and social environment in which the rights and dignity of all its members are respected, and which is free from discrimination, prejudice, intimidation and all forms of harassment including bullying.
This Policy means that all students and employees of UCL have the right to study or work in an environment free from discrimination, prejudice and all forms of harassment or bullying.
UCL is committed to a programme of action to ensure that this and other equalities policies are implemented and monitored at an organisational and individual level.
WHAT IS MEANT BY "EQUAL OPPORTUNITY"?
Factors such as sex, sexual orientation, marital or civil partnership status, ethnic origin, race, religion, colour, nationality, political beliefs, gender reassignment, pregnancy and maternity, disability and age should not be taken into account for the purposes of:
Recruitment, appointment, training, appraisal, promotion, discipline etc.
Application to and acceptance on to a course of study, and assessment of academic performance
Selection for a course of study or for a job should be made solely on merit
"Given its Benthamite origins and pioneering tradition, it would be totally incomprehensible for UCL not to be committed to an intelligent Equal Opportunities programme." – Professor Malcolm Grant, UCL Provost.
