Equal Education Opportunity (EEDO)

The School of Computing & Mathematical Sciences is firmly committed to the principle of equal opportunities for all.

It is University policy to provide equal opportunities in both education and employment for all people regardless of factors that are irrelevant to their abilities, thereby deriving benefit from the overall pool of talent that exists in New Zealand society and contributing to its enrichment.

The School is also committed to a policy of selection and appointment on the basis of merit. The interpretation of merit is comprehensive, and includes a diverse range of areas of experience and personal qualities as well as formal qualifications.

We seek a higher proportion of both Māori and people with disabilities in all areas of University life, and a more equal representation of genders, particularly at graduate level. There is recognition, too, that socio-economic situation and ethnic origins significantly affect access to university study. The University actively encourages participation from under-represented groups through student recruitment policies and student support services.
