The University of East Anglia is delighted to be working in conjunction with ‘DisabledGo' and to welcome disabled people to UEA, whether for study, work or special events. We are continually striving to improve disabled access to our campus facilities and services and the success of this enterprise is now being evidenced in the increasing numbers of disabled students enjoying the high quality education and social experience provided by UEA and successfully graduating from their chosen degree programmes.
UEA is keen to increase its number of disabled staff through positive action in recruitment and in recent years we have seen the percentage of staff declaring a disability increase steadily.
Our goal is to provide a diverse and harmonious campus supported by all our Faculties and their Schools. They, in turn, are supported by the Equality and Diversity Office, our Human Resources team and our Centre for Staff Education and Development. Progress will be reviewed and measured on an ongoing basis by our Equality and Diversity Committee and is reported to the University's Council annually. More information about equality and diversity, our own policies and our annual reports on trends in our staff and student populations can be found at: www.uea.ac.uk/equality.
The PGR Research Office and Research Service are responsible for supporting all PGR research students and their supervisors.
