The University of Southampton confirms its commitment to a comprehensive policy of equal opportunities in employment and for students. Individuals are selected and treated on the basis of their relevant merits and abilities and are given equal opportunities within the University. The aim of the policy is to ensure that no job applicant, employee, prospective student or student should receive less favourable treatment on any grounds which are not relevant to good employment practice for staff, or to academic ability and attainment for students.
The University has a number of policies that underpin and support their equal opportunities policy. This includes the Race Equality Policy, The Disability Equality Scheme and the Gender Equality Scheme.
The University publishes an annual report on progress in equality and diversity, and this is available upon request by sending an email to K.Keridge-Poonia@soton.ac.uk.
All members of staff will be expected to work within the spirit and letter of the University's Equal Opportunities policies.
