We exist to create and share knowledge and to educate for the benefit for all. The city of Cardiff itself with its diverse population offers a range of unique attractions, events and entertainment, with innovative architecture sitting alongside historic building – all within walking distance.
We want to fulfil our social, cultural and economic obligations to Cardiff, Wales and the world and are dedicated to promoting equality. We recognise the advantages of a diverse and talented student and staff community and the benefits that this brings to every individual – and to the University as a whole. We have a range of programmes and activities designed to raise aspirations and promote higher education to traditionally under-represented groups and we aim to provide an inclusive environment which anticipates support needed by our diverse range of staff and students.
Diversity and Inclusion
Our objectives for equality and diversity are set out in our University Strategic Equality Plan and are supported by an action plan setting out how these objectives are to be achieved.
We also take part in national initiatives, which whilst focusing work on a particular area of inclusion, has the benefit of improving equality for all.
We have taken part in the Stonewall Workplace Equality Index of Top 100 Employers for a number of years and have improved our ranking year on year. In 2016 we were placed 20th in the UK, the top University in the country.
We hold a University wide Bronze Athena SWAN award in addition to 14 school level awards and are currently working towards a submission for the Race Equality Charter Mark.
We are one of the UK’s most innovative, ambitious, and successful universities and recognise that our success depends largely upon the commitment, energy and enthusiasm of our people. Join us and help us achieve our ambition of becoming a world-leading, research-excellent, educationally outstanding university, driven by creativity and curiosity, which fulfils its social, cultural and economic obligations to Cardiff, Wales, and the world.
