School of Technology


The University of Cambridge and the School of Technology are committed to creating and sustaining a positive and supportive working environment for our staff, and an excellent teaching and learning experience for our students.

We aspire that staff are equally valued and respected, and students are encouraged to thrive academically. As a provider of employment and education, we value the diversity of our staff and students. We are committed to providing a fair, equitable and mutually supportive learning and working environment for our students and staff. This is reflected in the core values of the University Strategy, which state the importance of: 

  • valuing, respecting and promoting the rights, responsibilities and dignity of individuals within all our professional activities and relationships 
  • equality of educational opportunity based on merit, irrespective of background, beliefs and socio-economic context 

We believe that excellence will be achieved through recognising the value of every individual. We aim to create an environment that respects the diversity of staff and students, enabling them to achieve their full potential, contribute fully and derive maximum benefit and enjoyment from their involvement in the life of the University. 

To this end, we acknowledge the following basic rights for all members and prospective members of our community: 

  • to be treated with respect and dignity 
  • to be treated fairly with regard to all procedures, assessments and choices 
  • to be encouraged to reach one’s full potential 

These rights carry responsibilities and we require all members of our community to recognise these rights and act in accordance with them. In addition, we will comply with all relevant legislation and good practice. 

No individual will be unjustly discriminated against. This includes, but is not limited to, discrimination because of age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion and belief, sex and sexual orientation.
