At UM, we recognise that each individual is unique, with a particular personality, social background, networks and talents. However, while celebrating diversity among our UM community, this may also pose challenges to students and staff alike.
At the Equity Office, our vision is to ensure that equity, diversity and inclusion are truly embedded within all levels of the University and are mainstreamed accordingly across the whole Institution.
The Equity Office, which falls under the Pro-Rector Staff, Student Affairs and Outreach coordinates, monitors and sees to the implementation of the Gender+ Equity Plan. Furthermore, the Equity Office engages in consultation with the relevant stakeholders to organise various initiatives with the aim to promote and raise awareness on the various aspects of EDI.
Together with the support services that UM offers, our mission is to help create a safe space where you can belong.
