“Having previously worked in a department that was initially male-only, I witnessed the transformation brought about through the introduction of good equality and diversity practice. This experiment reinforced my belief that universal engagement is a must to achieve excellence in education and research.” Professor Ken Meissner, Head of Department
The Physics Department is committed to improving the outcomes and experience of Higher Education for both staff and students. We need to make sure that everyone has the opportunity to address unanswered questions in physics. Our vision for physics in the 21st Century is one that includes all.
The department has a Diversity, Equality and Inclusivity Committee which meets once a term. Women and men, senior academics and postgraduate students, permanent and part-time staff are represented on the committee. The Head of Department sits on the committee showing the commitment to improve our working practice and benefit everyone. Equality of opportunity for all is key.
