Equality and Diversity

We are committed to equal and fair treatment of all staff and students

Since 2012, the School has been building awareness and support of policies and actions to improve experience of the workplace for all staff and students. These actions are in line with the University of Edinburgh's Equality and Diversity policy. The University has a zero tolerance approach to bullying, harassment or discrimination and will respond promptly and sensitively to formal complaints, and where appropriate take disciplinary action.

We in PPLS align with the University’s condemnation of all racism:
