Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

The UCD School of History strives to be a model of inclusion. It is committed to celebrating diversity within the School community and promoting an environment where equality of opportunity is created for all. We respect and value student diversity in all the modules we offer. Our learning environment is designed inclusively, so that it can be accessed, understood, and used to the greatest extent possible, removing all barriers. Students are provided with equal opportunities to access, participate, and succeed, regardless of background, personal circumstances, age, disability, or pace of study. UCD is a university for all where diversity and inclusion are woven into the fabric of our institution at every level. Students are encouraged to approach staff to discuss their learning needs. Any information disclosed will be treated with confidentiality and respect.

The School of History Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Committee is responsible for promoting, mainstreaming and evaluating equality, diversity and inclusion related initiatives, policies and actions in the School in relation to both staff and students. For further information or supports with EDI matters, please contact the Director for EDI, Dr Fionnuala Walsh: fionnuala.walsh@ucd.ie.
