Change demands data.

Data Collection

 

Why it is important to collect equality data?

It can seem intrusive when you are asked by the University to provide information about your identity. Collecting data is a crucial part in making sure that our University can direct resources for supporting students, creating fair policies and roles in seeking new approaches in improving your experience. We understand that unconscious bias can exist and with that we use this data to understand our diversity and the inequalities within our community. Together, we can create a global platform that is built on the foundations of equality and inclusion.
