Sexual Orientation Equality Champion (Gender Reassignment, Marriage and Civil Partnership)
The University of Glasgow values all its students, staff and visitors equally, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender reassignment status. We aim to create a work, learning, teaching and research environment in which all staff and students, whatever their sexuality, feel equally welcome and valued, and in which discriminatory behaviour is not tolerated.
To support our work the University has appointed a Sexual Orientation Equality Champion from senior management, currently David Newall (Secretary of Court).
The Sexual Orientation Champion, supported by the Equality and Diversity Unit, chairs the Gender and Sexual Diversity Group. This group together brings student and staff representatives. The group acts as a channel of communication where issues affecting LGBT people can be raised and addressed or referred to appropriate bodies for action.
