Equality, Diversity and Inclusion at Liverpool Hope University

Liverpool Hope is committed to the principles of equality, diversity and inclusion as well as the elimination of discriminatory practices.

Within this context the University seeks to ensure that everyone:

• Is treated with respect and dignity
• finds it possible to participate fully in the life of the University
• is recognised for the varied contributions that contribute to Hope’s mission
• has equal access to opportunities so as to maximise their personal, academic and professional development

Underpinning this approach is the principle that no individual will receive less favourable treatment on the grounds of sex, marital status, gender reassignment, racial group, disability, sexual orientation, religion or belief, age, socio-economic background, trade union membership, or any other irrelevant distinction.

At Hope the individual and individuality matter. We hold students, staff and visitors in high regard and we foster a working and learning environment that recognises and respects differences.

The University is committed to fulfilling its obligations under equality legislation and these pages provide information on the work being undertaken in this area. Here you will find details on what the University is doing to comply, latest developments, support for staff and how you can get involved.


If you have an enquiry or need support regarding an equality and diversity issue you can e-mail Theresa Lewin on or phone on 0151 291 3348. Your enquiry will be treated in strictest confidence.
