Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking

The University is committed to protecting and respecting human rights.

Our Strategic Plan 2013-2019 sets out our core values, including “honesty and openness in all our activities, and behaving ethically in all situations”.  As such, the University takes a robust approach to ensuring that modern slavery or human trafficking is not happening as part of University operations or in the supply chain. 

Our approach is set out in our Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking Policy (.pdf).

The University also provides an annual Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement (.pdf) on steps taken to address modern slavery in operations and supply chains.
