Many of you will be aware of the political situation in Hong Kong. Sometimes global events impact on our students here at UC. This is a reminder that we want all staff and students to feel that they belong to the wider UC community.
At UC we are committed to academic freedom and freedom of speech. While people have different opinions on a matter, they must express those opinions in a way that respects the rights and views of others. Without exception the University will not tolerate racism or harassment of any kind.
If you witness racist behaviour at any time you can choose to take action if you feel comfortable to do so, or you can report what you have seen by using the Report It tool or you can ring Security on 0800 823 637.
Students have received a similar message which you can see here.
