How students can help promote gender equality

Gender equality is something we can all work towards. All students are expected to show respect to their fellow students, as well as staff members, regardless of their gender.

No student should be made to feel intimidated or uncomfortable for any reason, including their gender. Discriminatory ‘banter’ will not be tolerated within the University grounds and campus. This behaviour is also unacceptable on social media, including in group chats.

“Here at the Student Union we pride ourselves on promoting gender equality and ensuring everyone gets their voice heard. Students should always feel respected and valued and gender equality is something we can all work towards” - Mark Barrow, President of UNDEB (Students’ Union)
