Equality and Diversity are of central importance to our working ethos. Performance is our purpose at the Royal Conservatoire and the nurturing and development of the individual creative potential inherent in each and every member of our community, staff and students alike, lies at the very heart of our efforts. In turn, this means that the unique identity of every single individual who works or studies here is valid and is valued and respected.

The key place where issues are discussed is the Equality and Diversity Forum this group has staff and student members and aims to be representative of the institution’s diversity. If you would like to participate in the forum as a staff or student representative, contact Roz Caplan, our dedicated Equality and Diversity Officer, by email at r.caplan@rcs.ac.uk.
