Equality and Diversity Groups


Heriot-Watt University has a number of groups which have been set up with specific responsibilities to help move equalities forward within the University.

The Equal Opportunities Committee was set-up in 2002 and is made up of representatives from across the University. The Committee coordinates activity to promote diversity and support practices which ensure equal opportunities for all staff, students and visitors. This includes not only working to adhere to anti-discriminatory legislation, but constantly striving to meet everybody’s needs through research and consultation, whilst actively promoting good relations between different groups. The Equal Opportunities Committee widely acknowledges the negative impact of discrimination and is committed to achieving equality of opportunity and promoting diversity in the interests of the individual and the institution as a whole.

The Disability Advisory Group was also established in 2002 and looks specifically at issues affecting disabled students and staff. The Group is cross-departmental in its make up and has taken a lead coordination role in the production of Heriot-Watt’s Disability Equality Scheme. Click here more information.

The Disability Equality Scheme Working Group was set up after an engagement exercise across the University to involve students and staff in creating the Disability Equality Scheme (DES). The Group has overseen the creation of the DES and is likely to continue in an overseeing role during the lifespan of the DES (2006-2009).
