Higher Education sector inquiry into racial harassment
Can you contribute?
The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) has launched a formal inquiry into racial harassment of staff and students in publically funded Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) in England , Scotland and Wales. The inquiry will look at how easy and effective the routes for reporting racial harassment are in HEIs, and how effectively reports are dealt with. In order to assess this, the inquiry wants to hear from all HEI staff and students who have experienced, witnessed or helped in an incident of racial harassment since September 2015.
The University strongly encourages all staff and students who fall into this category to comply with this request by the deadline of Friday 15 February 2019.
