Al-Quds University believes in fostering a vibrant campus environment that cherishes diversity and encourages mutual respect. To ensure this, we have established a dedicated Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) Office, spearheaded by our appointed EDI Officer.
The EDI Office is tasked by the university administration and governing body to address diversity, equity, inclusion, and human rights issues on campus. They work proactively to advise on, develop, and implement comprehensive EDI policies, promoting a university culture that respects and values the individuality of every member.
One of the significant roles of the EDI Office is to devise and deliver tailored training programs. These sessions aim to educate our university community about the importance of diversity and inclusion, and provide practical skills to counteract prejudice and discrimination. They create opportunities for staff and students to explore and discuss EDI issues, enhancing their understanding and empathy.
The EDI Officer acts as the primary point of contact for any EDI-related concerns. They advocate for individuals who might feel marginalized or mistreated, ensuring their voices are heard and their rights are upheld. They work in collaboration with other university departments, local organizations, and national bodies to ensure our approach is comprehensive and effective.
In addition to this, we have established an Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion Committee. Comprising representatives from our diverse community, the committee ensures that our policies and programs consider the breadth of experiences and perspectives present within our campus. They review our practices regularly, making recommendations for improvements.
By fostering a culture of openness and respect, our EDI initiatives aim to ensure that Al-Quds University is a place where everyone feels valued and included, regardless of their background or identity. We firmly believe in creating an environment where each person has the opportunity to thrive and contribute their unique skills and perspectives to our collective academic mission.
