Equality, diversity and inclusion

We are committed to developing a diverse, equal and truly inclusive workplace and community. Celebrating difference is the right thing to do. It will also help us with our aim: to improve the health and wellbeing of citizens and communities. We developed the Get Experience in Applied Research (GEAR) programme to support early career researchers and post-graduate students at Oxford Brookes University who are from an ethnically diverse background. Find out more about equality, diversity and inclusion at Brookes on the University's webpage for staff and information for students.

Our commitment to achieving net zero

At Oxford Brookes, we recognise that urgent action is required to reduce or halt climate change. We declared a Climate Emergency in 2021 and are committed to being carbon net zero by 2040. Find out more about our plans and how IPC can help you think through the implications of climate change and build resilience to climate risks.
