Students enjoying social time together in One Zone

Positive experience for all

Our aims

We want to ensure the best possible experience for all students and staff at UWE Bristol. We are working to ensure that our commitment to equality is reflected in the behaviour, values and practices throughout the University. We are actively seeking to promote a culture where discrimination, bullying and harassment of any student or member of staff is unacceptable.

How we do this?

The objectives and actions set out within the Single Equality Scheme action plan will help us realise our aims and ensure that equality and diversity is embedded in everything that we do.

The Vice-Chancellors of the UWE Bristol and the University of Bristol, and Presidents and Student Officers of both Students' Unions have committed their institutions to a zero-tolerance approach to sexual violence and harassment.
