Each year in March, The University of Oxford publishes a status report on progress towards its institutional equality objectives for the four-year period to December 2022. This report has been prepared by the Equality and Diversity Unit (EDU) in partial fulfilment of the University’s publication requirements under the Equality Act 2010.
The report contributes to the University’s evidence-based policy making and enables it to:
- Identify and action areas for further improvement;
- Set new targets and indicators for our existing objectives; and
- Consider what additional objectives may be required.

Progress towards our objectives
The University’s equality objectives, supported by specific targets, provide a framework for actions to diversify and improve staff and student recruitment, representation and experience. Setting targets is a positive action measure which demonstrates organisational commitment and helps us to maintain momentum on actions for change. The University currently has six equality objectives which you can read about here.
