The quality and commitment of our staff is critical to the success of UCL.
The outstanding performance of the university reflects the achievement of all of our staff. In common with other universities, we have struggled to substantiate our commitment to parity of esteem between research and teaching and other activities in relation to the reward of academic staff.
We need to ensure that we maintain an appropriate balance between external recruitment of the best from around the globe with support and development of existing staff. The contribution of staff in professional services roles will be acknowledged and celebrated.
We will seek out innovative ways to substantiate our commitment to equality and diversity by removing barriers and actively promoting the diversity of our community. UCL has one of the largest populations of contract research staff in the UK and we must ensure that they are appropriately prepared for a wide range of future careers.
