Disabilities and access
The Department of Mathematics is committed to providing support to all staff and students to ensure they can maximise their potential and progress regardless of any disability. We encourage staff and students to request reasonable adjustments to their work/study environment.
We work to increase support and visibility of the Disability Advisory Service. We are increasing resources for students with disability and working with module leads to implement/ensure availability of appropriate adjustments or alternative formats for assessments where needed.
Able@Imperial is a network for staff with both visible and invisible disabilities and their managers as well as all those supportive of disability equality in the workplace. Able@Imperial provide support for disabled staff and their managers and run a supportive grouping for networking, events and informal coffee morning sessions.
Looking after our mental health is just as important as taking care of our physical health. As a Department, we recognise that people's mental health may change over time and we are mindful of creating an environment for work and study which promotes good mental health.
Our induction processes highlight where our staff and students can access free, confidential support for their mental health in College. In order to gain Gold EDI Training status in the Department, staff must have completed the 2 day Mental Health First-Aider course.
