The UCD School of Veterinary Medicine is the proud holder of an Athena SWAN Bronze Department Award, in recognition of its commitment to gender equality, diversity and inclusion. 

The School's Athena SWAN and EDI Committee organises many events and initiatives that support our agenda of promoting gender equality, diversity and inclusion for all faculty, staff and students.

The establishment of a ‘Sense of Community’ working group, comprising representatives of the student and staff populations is an important action in our Action Plan. Click on the links to see some of the initiatives that the group has been working on.

We are continuously looking at ways to ensure our staff and students have access to the tools and information they need to thrive in our School and beyond. We are actively developing initiatives in response to staff and student feedback in support of this.
