Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Structure
Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Governance at NUI Galway
In accordance with the recommendations of the NUI Galway Gender Equality Task Force 2016, the University has put in place a cohesive governance structure to guarantee clear and consistent leadership, responsibility, accountability, and oversight of equality, diversity, and inclusion.
The structures put in place allow for information to flow from local School or Unit level through the appropriate committee and into the Governing Authority. There are two Institutional EDI Committees - The Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion Campus Committee was established in 2016, and following from that, the Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion Committee of Údarás na hOllscoile (Governing Authority) was established in May 2017. Both of these committees work toward progressing the equality agenda in all areas at NUI Galway. You can find out more about their work, membership, and remit by reviewing the information available on this website.
The structures at College, School, and Unit level continue to progress, with development of local EDI committees and the introduction of College Vice-Deans for Equality and Diversity.
