The University launched the Speak Up campaign (which includes Report and Support) for students in September 2018, to create an inclusive campus where diversity is celebrated, antisocial behaviour is challenged in a safe way and any type of harassment, assault or discrimination is not acceptable.
In the 2020-21 academic year, we are launching the Speak Up campaign for staff, offering the training opportunities and communications so staff can recognise bullying, harassment and discrimination, to speak up and to become active bystanders.
