Statement of Intent
The University of Strathclyde Students Association (USSA) is committed to promoting Equal Opportunities for all. We are opposed to all forms of discrimination; what we do, or whatever we plan on doing, should provide for a full diversity of people and their rights. All members, employees, job applicants, volunteers and those who access USSA’s services must not be discriminated against on the basis of the characteristics outlined in the Equality Act 2012, nor in relation to health status, economic status, social background or class.
USSA agrees that the protected characteristics enshrined in the Equality Act 2010; such as Gender (including gender reassignment); Marital or Civil partnership status; having or not having dependants; religious belief or political opinion; race (including colour, nationality, ethnic or national origins); disability; sexual orientation; and age, should be respected, and that those who fall into these categories must not suffer discrimination.
