About Equality

Dr. Debra Croft - Director of Equality

The University’s Strategic Plan 2012 - 2017 emphasises our commitment to creating opportunities: ‘to break down the barriers to access, supporting students and staff to succeed and grow’ and includes the importance of “Aber Values” including ‘celebrating the individual contribution of each colleague and each student, we work to enable all to reach their full potential and to remove barriers to success’.

This commitment is translated in to practice through the Strategic Equality Plan (SEP) 2016-2020 which sets out our commitment to promoting a fair, equal and diverse community for our students, staff and visitors. 

Promoting equality is more than a statement of how the University will meet the statutory requirements.  We strive to ensure that students, staff and visitors embrace equality and diversity as an essential part of how we operate and to embed this way of working in everything we do.  Our six Equality Objectives were derived from staff and student consultations, surveys and focus groups demonstrating that Equality matters to our whole community.
