Equality, Diversity and Inclusion at UCL History of Art

The UCL History of Art Department has a long and proud tradition of pushing the boundaries of the discipline, championing diversity and nurturing an inclusive culture through our teaching, research and public engagement work. 

We are one of the first Art History departments in the UK to pursue feminist studies, issues of class and inequality, and visual studies of difference.  Going hand in hand with our academic focus on diversity, our Department aims to create a supportive, open-minded and welcoming environment that reflects our values. History of Art have an active and passionate Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Board with representatives from across the staff and student communities. We are keen to learn from our students, our alumni and our staff, and we welcome your ideas and suggestions on how to make the department more inclusive.

We have chosen banner images across our website that reflect the diversity of the Art History teaching and research that can be found at UCL.Throughout our equality, diversity and inclusion pages, our staff and students have provided some short explanations about why that image was chosen for the page.
