Stand Up Speak Out: Students

Stand Up Speak Out is our campaign to encourage students and staff to take action against bullying, harassment and other forms of unacceptable behaviour they may experience or witness. We want everyone at the university to be active bystanders and to feel confident in challenging all forms of unacceptable behaviour

Statement of Anti-Racism

This sets out expectations we have of all students and staff to support our institutional commitment to anti-racism.

Zoe Pither, Head of Student Inclusion

"Stand Up Speak Out engages everybody to play an active part in ensuring a University community where people from the broadest possible range of backgrounds can thrive in their work and studies. All our students and staff have a personal responsibility to treat each other with respect, and to speak up when something isn’t right. Together we can create an environment where everybody can reach their full potential without fear of harassment, prejudice or discrimination."
