Equality and Diversity Committee (EDC)
The Equality and Diversity Committee consists of a number of representatives elected to represent the voice of staff and students from different areas across the University. This includes academic faculties, the Student Union, trade unions (UCU and Unison), Student Services, staff development and Human Resources. The committee meets each term to discuss the provision of policies, procedures and facilities, ensuring that equality and diversity issues are addressed within the University.
Dates of the EDC meetings will be posted on the University Calendar, Intranet and E&D calendar. Minutes from previous meetings are available from the EDC intranet page.
