Loughborough University recognises that people are our success, and our reputation is dependent on the commitment and excellence of our staff.

We are committed to achieving equality for all those who learn and work here and wish to develop a demonstrably fair and supportive environment, which provides equality of opportunity and freedom from unlawful discrimination on the grounds of race, colour, nationality, ethnic origin, gender, gender identity (transsexuality), marital or civil partnership status, disability, sexual orientation, religious or political beliefs, age, social class or offending background.
