Leaders in Diversity

New College Durham have been recognised by the National Centre of Diversity as Leaders in Diversity.  This was achieved in May 2016. This process has given the College a framework against which to analyse our performance and identify areas for further development and improvement.

The National Centre for Diversity has combined a supportive partnership approach with a stringent oversight of our current practice and approach to Equality, Diversity and Inclusion. They identified that the College is committed to being a place where learning and working exists in an environment that advances equality of opportunity, celebrates diversity and allows everyone to achieve their fullest potential.


We are constantly striving to move beyond legal compliance towards promoting and celebrating Equality and Diversity.  We are proud to have achieved Leaders in Diversity awarded by the National Centre for Diversity which demonstrates an all-encompassing methodology for improving Equality, Diversity and Inclusion practices at the heart of everything we do and we are now working towards being Leaders in Diversity.
