College Policies and Procedures


Equal opportunities

The College welcomes diversity amongst its students, staff and visitors, recognising the particular contributions to the achievement of the College’s mission that can be made by individuals from a wide range of backgrounds and experiences.

The policy and practice of Mansfield College requires that all staff are offered equal opportunities within employment and that entry into employment with the College and progression within employment will be determined only by personal merit and the application of criteria which are related to the duties of each particular post and the relevant salary structure. In all cases, ability to perform the job will be the primary criterion. Subject to statutory provisions, no applicant or member of staff will be treated less favourably than another because of age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage or civil partnership, pregnancy or maternity, race, religion or belief, sex, or sexual orientation.

In relation to students the College aims to provide education of excellent quality at undergraduate and graduate level for intellectually able students, whatever their background. In pursuit of this aim, the College is committed to using its best endeavours to ensure that all of its activities are governed by principles of equality of opportunity, and that all students are helped to achieve their full academic potential. This statement applies to recruitment and admissions, to the coverage of the curriculum, to teaching and assessment of progress, to welfare and support services, and to staff development and training.
