Equality & Dignity & Respect

Carlow College, St. Patrick’s is committed to supporting an environment where every member is treated with dignity and respect.

The College strives to create an environment that is supportive and conducive to work and study. The College has a diverse learner, research and staff body with multiple roles which encompasses all groups in the College. The College promotes, and is committed to championing a collegiate environment for its staff, learners and other community members, which is free from personal harassment (on any of the nine grounds included in equality legislation), bullying and sexual harassment. These include:

  • gender;
  • civil status (single, married, divorced, etc.);
  • family status (if you are the parent or person responsible for a child over 18, or if you are the main carer or parent of a person with a disability);
  • sexual orientation;
  • religion;
  • age;
  • disability;
  • race; and
  • being a member of the Travelling community.

Equality is central and fundamental to the ethos of the College, where accordingly, equal respect to all members of its community is a pivotal part of Carlow College’s mission to ensuring everyone has the same opportunities to fulfil their potential free from discrimination. View our Equality Policy here.

The College states clearly its expectation that all members of the community will work to develop and maintain a high degree of respect and civility in our community.

We are currently updating our Dignity and Respect Policy which will be available to view in due course.
