In the last departmental staff survey we were perceived as a friendly, supportive and inclusive Department. We are striving for excellence and want to sustain a supportive working environment for all staff. We received a silver Athena SWAN award in November 2000.
Our commitment to inclusivity goes beyond obtaining awards. We believe that our Department benefits from the talents of all students and staff regardless of their gender, age, disability, ethnicity, caring responsibilities and sexual orientation.
