Opportunities in MPLS

ED&I Fellows

Every year, the MPLS Division recruits a cohort of ED&I Fellows. These are students and staff from different departments within the Division who are all passionate about advancing equality and diversity and making a positive change in the Division. Fellows work with the MPLS ED&I team, ED&I Steering Group and departmental ED&I leads on projects that they have a personal interest in and which contribute to the delivery of the MPLS ED&I action plan. Each fellow receives an honorarium of £1,000 to spend on personal and professional development.

Find out more about current and past ED&I Fellows and the work they have done.

ED&I Fund

Funding is available to support activities in departments to advance equality, diversity and inclusion.

Over each academic year, £8,000 is dispersed to departments in MPLS for ED&I activities that:


  • Create new projects and initiatives;
  • Enhance and support existing activity that has evidenced impact;
  • Foster creative ideas to address existing disparities/inequalities pertaining to protected characteristics as described in the Equality Act 2010; or
  • Pilot activity in a department for possible extension across the Division.

Find out more about past projects and how to apply for funding.

ED&I Awards

Every other year, alternating with the University-wide Diversity Awards, the MPLS awards recognise staff and students in the division who have gone above and beyond in their efforts to advance ED&I within our communities.
