Equality impact assessment template and guidance for policy owners

The university’s Equality Impact Assessment template has been updated.  Some guidance has been added on how individuals should impact assess policies providing some basic facts and figures to highlight the type of evidence that should be considered as part of the process of impact assessment. 

If policy owners would like a word format document emailed, or have any questions please contact:

Bullying and Harassment Policy

The updated Bullying and Harassment Policy (PDF 176KB) covers both staff and students and identifies clearly the types of behaviours which constitute bullying and harassment overall and in relation to each of the equality protected characteristics. The policy also identifies sources of help and support for staff and students and outlines the process for reporting any breaches of the policy.


Networks for staff

Staff groups and networks are an added benefit to life at RGU. They’re an opportunity to meet new people, share information, pursue your interests and support each other.

If you lead a staff network or group that’s not on this list, or know someone who does, get in touch with RGU Communications for details on how to be included.

Book club

An informal and relaxed approach to a book club that encourages people to discover something new to read that they may never have considered before.

To join the group, email Irene Brockie.

Faith and belief

Aims to improve people’s understanding of each other by being open to those who have faith or belief as well as those with none.

No registration necessary. Keep an eye on The Bulletin for the next activity.

Knit and Natter

For all skill levels of knitting or crocheting, including complete beginners who want to learn. It gets you away from your desk to meet with like-minded people where you can learn from each other and relax.

Join them using the Knit and Natter Facebook group.

Language and Culture Exchange

An opportunity to socialise with colleagues while learning about different cultures and languages from across the globe.

Sign up by emailing the Culture Network.

Mental Health Movie Monthly

Providing free monthly film showings, allowing an inclusive safe space where people can discuss mental health and human experience as equals. The group uses what’s discussed often – film – as a platform to talk about what isn’t: everyone has mental health.

 To be added to the mailing list, email Dan Warrender.
