Hate Crime Project
Tackling Religious and Race Based Hate Crime
In April 2018, the Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Unit was awarded £50,000 by the Office for Students to undertake a two-year project tackling religious and race based hate crime. The project consists of learning through research about the experiences of members of the university community and co-producing with our students, mechanisms to increase reporting, respond to reports and offer support.
During the 2019/2020 academic year the University will be introducing an online tool which provides a pathway for students and staff to request to speak to a Bullying & Harassment Advisor or College Support Officer, make anonymous (no action requested) and named (requesting university action) reports on incidents under the Respect at Study and Respect at Work policies as well as the Sexual Violence and Misconduct Policy. Additionally, the tool contains resources on internal and external support for bullying and harassment, hate crime, sexual violence and misconduct and relationship abuse.
