Governance

Northumbria University has a strong commitment to equality, diversity, and inclusion and this is reflected in our governance and management arrangements. 

Our approach to delivering our EDI agenda necessarily combines wide staff engagement, network support, and programme delivery, overseen by Executive leadership and Board level security. 

Responsibility for overseeing, monitoring and reporting on the progress of EDI matters lies with the EDI Committee which is chaired by Professor Andy Long, the Vice-Chancellor and Chief Executive of Northumbria University, and is supported by five EDI Subgroups. These are the University's Athena Swan Self-Assessment Team, Disability Steering Group, LGBTQ* Steering Group, Race Equality Steering Group, and Accessibility Review Group. 

The EDI governance structure is as follows:
