York St John University Equality Information


At York St John we are proud of our reputation as a university that encourages students and staff to flourish in an inclusive, accessible and friendly environment.  Every day across campus we make real the commitment in our mission statement “to the provision of excellent, open and progressive higher education that embraces difference, challenges prejudice and promotes justice” in practical ways that enhance the experience of our diverse student and staff communities.

The challenges that we have set ourselves to improve the student experience and increase the number of students, including international students, who choose to come to York St John means that it is now more important than ever that we are confident of our understanding of equality and diversity issues and our skill in creating an environment where everyone feels welcome and where individual needs are recognised and addressed. 

The data provided on the following web pages contains key statistics relating to our students and staff profiles and outlines some of the action that we have taken to advance equality and diversity best practice across the University.

The Staff Survey 2012 highlighted that 98% are aware of the University’s Equality, Diversity & Human Rights Policy and 97% are satisfied with their level of awareness of diversity issues and how to react appropriately with colleagues and students.
