The promotion of equality and respect of all human rights is integral to the overall purpose of Maynooth University, which aims to realise a University dedicated to people, ideas and culture, where we work together as educators, researchers, administrative, professional and technical staff along with students in a diverse scholarly community.

The University is committed to being a community that promotes and advances equality, respects and values diversity, and develops a collegiate environment of excellence with equality, in which the human rights, the responsibilities and diversity of all students and staff are recognised and respected.

The Maynooth University Equality and Diversity Policy has been developed therefore, to realise these core values of equality, inclusiveness, social justice, dignity and respect. This Policy can be found here and more information is available from the HR Equality Officer, email: equality@mu.ie
