Standing Together at Leicester

Posted by rmt22 at Sep 26, 2018 12:25 PM |
Students and staff at the University of Leicester are Standing Together to create an inclusive, respectful and safe campus.

We have created two animations, one of which we released earlier this summer and a new ‘how to get support’ film, which will be shown during student inductions.

The videos are designed to raise awareness of unacceptable behaviours such as sexual harassment, bullying and hate crime and show students where and how they can get support if they are affected by these behaviours.

What is Standing Together?

How to get support

Training for staff

A new ‘Hate Crime in Higher Education’ course has been launched on Blackboard to give you the knowledge and skills to tackle these issues more effectively.

The course has been developed by the Centre for Hate Studies to demonstrate how hate, hostility and harassment affect students. It takes around half an hour to complete and can be found in the courses tab on Blackboard. If you have any questions please contact centreforhatestudies@le.ac.uk

What else are we doing?

  • Raising awareness of and tackling unacceptable behaviours on campus – namely, bullying, sexual harassment and violence, and hate crime. We have had a strong presence at Welcome Week so far where we are providing students with information about Standing Together and how they can get involved.
  • Developing a new online anonymous reporting mechanism for students
  • Implementing new support services for victims including an Independent Sexual Violence Advisor on campus once a week for students to drop-in
  • Improving policies and procedures relating to inappropriate interpersonal behaviour
