UUK ‘Changing the Culture’ report published.

UUK established a taskforce in November 2015 to examine violence against women, harassment and hate crime affecting students. The aim was to bring together students, university experts and external organisations to consider the current evidence, the work that universities are already doing to address these issues and what more needs to be done.The final report is here:

A working group has developed policy/procedures to align with many of the issues contained in the report. This new policy is listed as item 22 on the Student Support policies page http://www.surrey.ac.uk/currentstudents/ask/regulations/

A related set of recommendations was endorsed by EB on 17 Nov and will be taken forward by the group over the next 6 months.
