Equity, Diversity & Inclusion

Find out more about equality, diversity and inclusion at The Faculty of Mathematical and Physical Sciences, from our strategy for the next three years to our practice and events.
 Best practices in equality, diversity and inclusion in higher education institutions are as much a case of advancing science and education as they are about social justice.  I am committed to help our MAPS Faculty and all its departments and institutes to be not only more diverse but, above all, inclusive. I believe that bolder measures to understand and confront our systemic and individual biases against gender and ethnicity are needed, if we are to retain and attract the talent that makes UCL MAPS thrive and excel.” - Prof Alexandra Olaya-Castro, Vice-Dean (Equality, Diversity and Inclusion) in MAPS.
