Inclusion at Sheffield

We know that to be a world-class university we must be truly inclusive. We are proud of our diverse community and are committed to working together to create a fully inclusive environment that promotes growth and development.

Why diversity matters

We know that when people come together with different views, approaches and insights it can lead to richer, more creative and innovative teaching and research and the highest levels of student experience.

We are proud that women make up 50 per cent of our workforce, nearly 20 per cent of our staff are from a Black, Asian and Other Minority Ethnic background, and international colleagues make up 23 per cent. We have more than 30,000 students, including 10,047 students from 140 countries.
