Equality, Diversity, and Inclusivity Charter
St Edmund’s College was founded in 1896 on the principles of diversity and inclusivity, to create a home for education, religion, learning, and research in Cambridge for an excluded Roman Catholic minority. Over a century later, while we now welcome members of any or no faith, these principles remain central to our mission and ethos. We are proud to be one of the most international colleges in Cambridge, welcoming members from over 80 countries to our community. It is this confluence of cultures and experiences that makes us unique. There is no place within our College for any form of hatred against another: every member of our community has the right to human dignity and to live, work and learn in a safe and welcoming environment; equally, each of us has the duty to ensure those same rights are extended to all. St Edmund’s College is committed to ensuring these principles are upheld for the common good.
