Equality Impact Assessment (EIA)

main content

The University of Strathclyde is committed to fair and transparent practices. In discharging this responsibly we have Equality Impact Assessment guidelines and a framework.

Equality Impact Assessment (EIA) is a systematic and evidence based process which verifies that the University’s policies and practices are not discriminatory. A key element of an EIA is the reliance on equality monitoring information.

An EIA is required when reviewing or developing new policies or where a change to practice may potentially discriminate people from a protected characteristic background.

The relevant department/individual responsible for overseeing a policy or practice is expected to conduct an EIA. Advice and guidance on the process is available from the Equality Office.
