The University of Dundee is fully committed to the principles of promoting race equality for all staff, students and others associated with the University (e.g. visitors and contractors). These principles will be core to the University’s Corporate Values, Strategies and Plans. The University of Dundee has pledged to increase its efforts to tackle racial inequalities and address the structural barriers that still exist to build an inclusive and supportive institutional culture that will ensure good practice for all members of the University community, irrespective of their race or ethnicity.
Our commitment to race equality has been an area of focus for several years and active since 2007, significantly with the establishment of our Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) Staff Network. We have made positive progress over the last few months in strengthening and furthering our commitment to tackling racial inequalities in the University, highlighted by our work on the Race Equality Charter and Black Lives Matter Tracker action plan drawing support from our community of staff and students.
Race equality activities
The University of Dundee has been a member of Advance HE's Race Equality Charter since December 2018, which aims to improve the representation, progression and success of minority ethnic staff and students.
The University of Dundee was recently awarded a Bronze Charter Award for a period of 5 years in recognition of the work that it has done thus far to meet the standards of the Race Equality Charter.
