Welcome to Warwick. My name is Rebecca Limb and for this academic year I am the student-facing ED&I officer meaning I am a point of contact for any Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion concern.
At Warwick, we value our diverse and international community, the pursuit and dissemination of knowledge and research with real impact. We nurture intellectual challenge and rational, rigorous debate. We want to support our students and each other to become critical thinkers and collaborative yet independent learners – individuals with a global and sustainable outlook, who are able to make an active and positive contribution to society.
We are committed to working towards a supportive, accessible, and inclusive environment within which all members of our community can successfully learn, work, live and socialise.
Warwick Law School uphold the Universities values that sets out expectations for how we behave as a University community, both as individuals and as an institution.
First, we must treat everyone with respect. Everyone in our community has the right to be treated with dignity and respect.
Second, we do not tolerate discrimination on the grounds of gender, race, sexuality, or disability. There is no tolerance for sexist, racist, ableist, homophobic, transphobic, xenophobic behaviour. At Warwick we live and study in a diverse, inclusive, and multicultural environment in which there is no tolerance for intolerance.

Third, we do not tolerate sexual misconduct, violence, and abuse.
For more information about sexual misconduct, abuse or violence and how to report it, visit https://warwick.ac.uk/about/values/sexual_misconduct/policy_and_procedure/
Fourth, we keep our campus and community safe.
This includes no tolerance for bullying and exclusive behaviours. For sources on information and support on bullying, discrimination, sexual misconduct please visit https://warwick.ac.uk/services/equalops/findsupport/dignityatwarwick.
Fifth, “We” means all of us, students, and staff alike.
We uphold the importance not only of freedom of thought and expression, but also the significance of academic and personal integrity, equality and diversity, and mutual respect and consideration for the rights, safety and dignity of all. We place great importance on the responsible behaviour of both our students and staff at Warwick.
Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion concerns everyone in our community. At Warwick University we are one community and we expect that everyone plays their role in contributing to a safe, welcoming, and productive environment where there is equality of opportunity, mutual respect, inclusion, and dignity.
Unconscious bias training is one example of how you can play your role in contributing to this safe and welcoming environment. Unconscious bias training seeks to increase our awareness of how our judgements and behaviours may be influenced by our backgrounds, experiences, and cultural environments.

Who to contact if you have an ED&I concern?
If you have an ED&I concern, please do contact me (Rebecca Limb) to discuss your concern. My role as ED&I officer is to be your point of contact. To listen and provide advice and support. What you say in confidence about your personal circumstances is kept distinct from your academic studies. Therefore, approaching me to discuss a concern will not impede your academic progress.
You can also contact your personal tutor.
