Athena SWAN at the School of Life Sciences

Our commitment to equality and diversity in higher education was recognised by Advance HE in June 2018 with an Athena SWAN departmental Bronze award.

This award demonstrates that the School of Life Sciences is committed to the best practices that support our staff and students across all areas of equality and diversity.

In particular, we are proud to have the first University of Glasgow Athena SWAN student network, which was recognised by Athena SWAN as a beacon activity.

In supporting our staff, we have enhanced mentoring and career development support, provided informal flexible working guidelines and improved collegiate and social activities with away days, council meetings and social events.
