Diversity and Participation
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. It was also the first in England to admit men and women on an equal basis.
The Philosophy Department is committed to making efforts to further that egalitarian tradition today. We recognise the importance of promoting equality of opportunity and diversity at every level. The Department has a Widening Participation committee, which meets termly and aims to increase the inclusivity and equality of participation within our community.
We are eager to encourage the participation of women, especially in our graduate community and faculty, as women are currently under-represented at both these levels in the profession nationwide.
