The University is an international and multicultural community which values and encourages diversity.

UEA is committed to addressing inequalities through all aspects of its work. We are proud of the increasing diversity of our campus and the work we do with staff, students and organisations around Norwich and Norfolk. We work regionally and nationally to achieve our aim of being an inclusive place to study and work.

The University is committed to promoting a positive attitude towards accessibility and creating the conditions in which all staff and students can participate fully in the academic, social, and recreational life of the University.

UEA has a faith centre which is a spiritual meeting place and community centre on campus. Facilities include a large common room, two Quiet rooms for individuals or small groups to spend time in contemplation or prayer and a large worship room for religious services.

There are multiple staff networks and communities which all staff are welcome to join, including BAME Network, Staff Pride Network, Inclusivity Network, LGBTQ+ Allies, ResNet and Access all Areas. The networks are a space for staff to meet, share experiences, provide peer support and facilitate learning.

We have invested in supporting our University Community with mental health and wellbeing by launching a 24/7, 365 days a year Employee Assistance Programme for staff and their family members and have produced a Staff Mental Health and Wellbeing Strategy. We place wellbeing at the heart of our university, and we aim to equip our staff and students with the understanding, skills, and experience to lead satisfying, worthwhile and fulfilling lives.
