Colleges are appointing Discrimination and Harassment Contacts whose role is to provide confidential support to students who may be experiencing any form of discrimination, harassment, or sexual misconduct.

This could include anything linked to a ‘protected characteristic’ (race, religion and belief, disability, sexual orientation, gender reassignment, age, pregnancy and maternity, marriage and civil partnership, or sex).

The contacts will support race equality within each College, as well as advising students who have experienced harassment on reporting options, and referring them to specialists for help.

Please contact individual Colleges for further information.
