Equality & Diversity

We value diversity and want every one of our students and staff to feel comfortable and that they belong. The richness of perspectives and experiences of all our members strengthens our research and enhances our teaching.

The Oxford Interdisciplinary Bioscience DTP places Equality, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EEDI) at the heart of all our activities. EEDI policies and practices are fully embedded at all levels, from leadership and staffing to student recruitment, retention, attainment, progression and wellbeing and many of the staff members and students associated with the MPLS DTC and the DTP are taking a leading role in promoting EEDI within the University of Oxford and the DTP partner institutions. 

We already benefit from the extensive equality and diversity framework and strategy in place at the University of Oxford, which is underpinned by the University’s Equality Policy. The Equality Policy provides for an open and inclusive environment, that: 

'promotes equality, values diversity and maintains a working, learning and social environment in which the rights and dignity of all its staff and students are respected.’
