Standing together

24 Oct 2023

A commitment to good community relations at this difficult time

We understand that our University community is deeply concerned about the escalating violence, loss of life and the dreadful situation in Israel and Palestine.

The University and Students’ Union are continuing to stand together, committed to assuring good community relations at this difficult time as detailed in this wider communication:

We recognise and support peaceful and respectful protest and the right to free speech within the law and we are working tirelessly to ensure that our community remains a safe and welcoming place for all.

We restate once again that all forms of racism, antisemitism, islamophobia, discrimination, and abuse have no place in our community.
