Our processes and policies aim to balance efficiency with opportunities to create social and environmental benefit.
We make a significant impact on our local and global communities through our policies, activities and processes. Our commitment to responsible processes runs through the way we undertake our operational activity in human resource and financial management as well as underpinning conduct in our core teaching and research. Read more about how the University engages with responsible processes:
Equality and diversity
The Faculty support the Athena Swan Charter which recognises the advancement of gender equality. Traditionally focussed on promoting careers in science and technological fields the charter has been expanded to recognise the work undertaken in humanities too.
Helen Beebee, Samuel Hall Professor of Philosophy within the Faculty, was invited to become one of four national patrons of the scheme in July 2015.
Race Equality Charter
We’re one of the first universities in the UK to have received recognition from the Equality Challenge Unit (ECU) for excellence in advancing racial equality in higher education.
We achieved a bronze award after successful participation in the initiative’s pilot year. Colleagues within Humanities contributed significantly to this achievement.
