Equality Action Groups & Champions

Faith and Belief

RGU is committed to creating and promoting a working and learning environment where everyone is treated fairly with dignity and respect.

In line with the Dignity at RGU policy, the Faith and Belief Action Group meets once a semester to create a safe space for meaningful discussion about topics that promote and improve the wellbeing of staff and students at RGU.

This group is chaired by Ibiye Iyalla, our staff equality champion (Faith and Belief).


Equality Champion - Faith and Belief

"I led the establishment of a faith-based organisation in the South-East of Scotland which has thrived in the past 13 years and provides support for all peoples in the city as well as engage in other charitable activities including providing food for the homeless and less privileged in the society. As someone with a strong background in faith and belief, I am keen to see a university community that embraces the diversity of belief systems and ensures that no one feels disadvantaged or discriminated against because of their faith and belief.

I hope to work with both staff, students, and external organisations to create awareness and promote faith and belief equality as well as influence policies within the University that impact on faith and belief."
