Tackling racial harassment in higher education
Following on from Equality and Human Right’s Commission’s 2019 report Tackling racial harassment: universities challenged Universities UK have published a new set of recommendations designed to decisively tackle racial harassment in UK higher education.
At Durham, we are committed to addressing race inequalities and are working on tackling racial harassment. We recognise that we are at the beginning of this journey, and welcome this guidance from UUK, which provides useful case studies and highlights practical steps and areas of focus; many of which we are responding to at Durham University. The full report Tackling racial harassment in higher education, along with the case studies, are available on the UUK website [www.universitiesuk.ac.uk].
