Cuth's Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Committee

In 2022 St Cuthbert's Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Committee was formed. A joint venture between the college and the JCR, the EDI Committee seeks to improve inclusion by developing and promoting EDI initiatives and overseeing the work done within the college to ensure it is carried out with EDI matters in mind. Cuth’s is already an inclusive, welcoming college, but a desire for continuous improvement has led to this development.

The Committee’s membership includes:

  • Vice Principal (or other College Officer when necessary),
  • Assistant Principal,
  • President of the Society,
  • Postgraduate and Mature Students’ President,
  • JCR Working Class Students Representative,
  • JCR LGBTQ+ Representative,
  • JCR International Representative,
  • JCR Students with Disabilities Representative,
  • JCR Local Students Representative, and
  • JCR Ethnic Minorities Representative.
  • College Chaplain
  • A staff member from the St Cuthbert’s Society teams (operations, catering, housekeeping, residential services assistants) as required.

Meeting twice a term, the Committee already has initiatives underway, including the creation of this online gateway for all EDI-related resources and a consultation survey on inclusivity and diversity at Cuth’s. It is also working with the University’s central EDI team on rolling out training for staff and students.
