Cardiff University recognises that a commitment to Equality & Diversity, and in particular to Race Equality, is fundamental to achieving its ultimate goal to become a ‘World Class University’ and pursue excellence in research, teaching and clinical service.
Race - refers to a group of people defined by their race, colour, and nationality (including citizenship) ethnic or national origins.
Race is a ‘protected characteristic’ under the Equality Act 2010, which means that the Equality Act provides legal protection from less favourable treatment on the grounds of race. This will include protection from discrimination, harassment or victimisation to all students (current, prospective or past), staff (potential, current or past) and visitors to the University because of their race (actual or perceived). The Equality Act also provides protection by association for people not to be treated less favourably on the grounds of race because of their association with someone e.g. a partner, parent or dependant.
Further information about the University’s Equality Objectives is included in the Strategic Equality Plan: http://www.cardiff.ac.uk/govrn/cocom/equalityanddiversity/stratequalplan/index.html
