The Athena SWAN Charter recognises the advancement of gender equality in higher education institutions and was expanded in 2015 to include all academic subject areas, professional and support staff, and trans staff and students.

The University became a member of the new charter in 2015, committing to Athena SWAN’s 10 key principles. By doing so, NTU is clearly demonstrating its commitment to gender equality and to adopting these principles within its policies, practices, action plans and culture.

Our Athena SWAN Self-Assessment Team (SAT) is chaired by Professor Mark Biggs (Pro Vice-Chancellor and Head of the College of Science & Technology), and supported by Claire Bell (Head of Equality, Diversity & Inclusion). The SAT will drive the reflective analysis required during the application process and oversee the development of a corresponding four-year action plan. Throughout the self-assessment, we will be consulting staff and students to gather views and gain valuable insight into the experiences of those working and studying at NTU.
