UCD prides itself on being Ireland’s Global University. As a global university, we have a responsibility to foster diversity and inclusion so that UCD is experienced as a welcome and supportive environment for all students and staff. Our School has an active and dynamic EDI Committee that aims to promote an inclusive and diverse work and study environment for all.
The SNMHS Equality Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) committee aims to create a more inclusive environment in our School, by:
- developing an understanding of inequalities experienced in our school, including but not limited to, those covered by the 10 equality grounds of the university: Age, Civil status, Disability, Family status including carer status, Gender (including gender identity), Traveller community membership, Ethnicity (race, skin colour, nationality or ethnic origin), Religion, Sexual orientation, and Socio-economic-status;
- developing and promoting actions to address such inequalities by raising awareness, challenging discrimination and encouraging attitude and behaviour change towards a more inclusive culture.
The members of our committee are listed below and you can download our information flyer here.
We welcome ideas from students and staff and encourage anyone who is interested in being involved to contact us.
