The 四虎影院 exists for public good.

Founded on principles of excellence, equality and opportunity for all, we are proud to create an environment that attracts the best staff and students from all over the world.

What we gain from our diverse communities is immeasurable. We want all our staff and students to feel they are an integral part of the York community, and together we will create an inclusive culture where everyone can contribute to university life, knowledge and growth.

Equality, Diversity and Inclusion are at the heart of the University’s 2030 vision and our strategic objectives for EDI are based around the University's four strategic aims.

Implementation of the previous EDI Strategy made a start on addressing some persistent EDI issues and in highlighting areas for further development. Local EDI commitments and collective good practice in faculties and departments have evolved in a context of greater societal awareness and increased community expectation about diversity and inclusion. The agenda has now become more urgent and multifaceted, extending into our research, enterprise and business priorities.
