Book your place on a special talk by the University and Students’ Union which will highlight the positive way we are tackling these difficult issues.

Students and staff are standing together to tackle issues which have arisen at the University which relate to sexual harassment and violence.

Colleagues across the University and the Students’ Union have been working to develop and implement various activities to highlight and address these issues.

On Monday 28 April, Professor Jon Scott, Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Student Experience) along with Linzi Price, Head of Student Welfare, Emily Davison, Wellbeing Project Assistant and Roisin Gallagher, SU Wellbeing Officer, will host a brief presentation on the strategic work we have done so far and developments going forward.

Part of this will involve sharing the results of an audit undertaken with students which identifies how many have experienced these issues as well as contributions from four psychology students who are researching associated topics including; differential change in affect when discussing incidents of laddism, implicit theories of revenge porn perpetrators, informal theories of sexual coercion and implicit theories of depression and access to mental services among students.

We would invite anyone who is interested to attend.

Date: Thursday 28 April

Time: 12.30-1.30pm
