Religion and belief
The University of Glasgow celebrates and values the diversity of its students, staff and visitors and aims to create an environment where the cultural, religious and non-religious or similar philosophical beliefs of all are respected. The University will strive to create a positive working, learning, teaching and research environment through education and awareness raising of cultures and religion or similar philosophical beliefs and will actively promote tolerance within its community.
To support the University's aim, we have appointed a Religion and Belief Champion from our senior managers, currently this is Professor Andrea M Nolan (Senior Vice-Principal and Deputy Vice-Chancellor). Our Religion and Belief Champion promotes and raises awareness around religion and belief equality issues. She also acts as chair of the Religion and Belief Equality Group, and provides feedback to the Equality and Diversity Strategy Committee, the Principal and other senior managers.
The University welcomes the Employment Equality (Religion and Belief) Regulations 2003 which allows the University to ensure all policies and procedures are fair and equal to all those of faith, or other philosophical belief (including non-belief).
