Working with difference and promoting equality underpins our ambition and purpose. Our studio based learning, research and collaboration transforms thinking and our individual and collective contributions influence the day-to-day lives of people across local and global communities.

As a community we are committed to creating and sustaining learning and working environments where difference is respected and the widest possible range of cultural and social perspectives are valued. We treat each other fairly, according to need, and minimise barriers to participation for all.

By fostering environments in which difference nourishes new questions and possibilities and where respect is a catalyst for the removal of barriers, we support the learning and development of individuals and our collective contribution to the common good.

GSA publishes appropriately anonymised equality and diversity monitoring statistics pertaining to its student body, staff body and Board of Governors on its website.
