The Diversity Calendar

The Diversity Calendar has been developed to help to raise awareness around the different equality groups and our University Population.  It is also a useful tool for planning vital meetings, events and exams when a large portion of the student or staff population may be unavailable.

In this section you can read all about past events hosted by the Equality, Diversity and Inclusion team along with events coming up that you can be involved in.

The 2019 calendar can be viewed here:
