The Institute of Aquaculture at the University of Stirling is committed to equality of opportunity.

Our priority is to embed divisional ethos where both students and staff can achieve their full potential, irrespective of gender identity, sexual orientation, race, religion, country of origin, disabilities or physical impairments, mental health, or other defining characteristics.

In line with the University of Stirling’s vision statement for equality, diversity and inclusion, the IoA’s EDI committee seeks to develop, champion andĀ nurtureĀ a welcoming and inclusive culture and environment that:

  • Actively prevents and tackles discrimination, harassment and abuse;
  • Respects and celebrates diversity and inter-culturalism;
  • Enables our staff and students to thrive and achieve their potential, regardless of their background or identification with a protected characteristic(s); and
  • Identifies and eradicates systemic barriers to equality.

The IoA’s EDI committee builds upon this by encouraging ongoing conversations with staff and students, identifying areas where further improvements are possible, and enacting change through an ambitious 5-year action plan which works towards the University’s 5 equality outcomes for 2021-2015 (Gender Equality; Mental Health and Wellbeing; Student Success; Anti-racism, Race Equality and Interculturalism; and Inclusion).
