Equality and diversity

Sheffield Hallam University is committed to advancing equality of opportunity, experience and outcome, ensuring that students and staff realise their full potential. This is reflected through the University’s values of inclusion and supportiveness, with equality, diversity and inclusion acting as key enablers to the University Strategy 

Our Equality Priorities 2014–20 set our vision to be recognised as a University that adds value to the futures of all our students, staff and partners by drawing on their unique and diverse talents and providing an environment that allows everyone to flourish and succeed.

Our Equality Information Reports provide information about the protected characteristics of our students and our employees as well as potential students and employees based on data currently available. The information is used to inform policy development and decision-making to ensure Sheffield Hallam University maintains and enhances its inclusive environment.

For more information and to download Equality Priorities 2014–2020 and Equality Information Reports please visit our Equality Reporting page.

The Equality and Diversity Team can provide expert advice on equality and diversity, Sheffield Hallam equality policies, and the Equality Act 2010.

For all the latest developments on the implications for higher education, please visit the Equality Challenge Unit website, and for national equalities information please visit Equality and Human Rights Commission, and Equalities Home Office.
