Equality Impact Assessments

Equality legislation requires public authorities to conduct Equality Impact Assessments on policies and practices.

An Equality Impact Assessment (EIA) is a systematic and evidence-based process which verifies that the University’s policies and practices are equality proof and not discriminatory. 

We are committed to promoting and monitoring fairness and equality of opportunity throughout our activities; for our staff, students, and anyone associated with the University (e.g., visitors, contractors and service providers). As part of this commitment, the University conducts Equality Impact Assessments as a performance and compliance tool.

Equality Impact Assessments are an essential part of the University’s approach to equality, diversity and inclusion, ensuring we embed consideration of protected characteristics throughout all our decision-making, programmes, projects, policies and practices. 

For more information on EIAs, please contact the EDI team.
