Tackling inequalities is a major challenge.  As well as meeting our legal requirements we make sure that people across the University Community understand how they contribute to a Culture of Inclusion for All. This holistic approach helps us maintain an open and accessible working, living and learning environment where all are supported to reach their full potential.

Our University Values are a major vehicle for delivering equality and diversity. The University is spread over 5 different campuses, 2 of which are overseas. Our values make sure that where ever you are, at any of our campuses you are aware of the distinctive ‘Spirit of Heriot-Watt’.
