National Enquiry into racial harassment in Higher Education

The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC ) is a national equality body working to eliminate unlawful discrimination and to promote equality of opportunity.  They have launched a national enquiry into racial harassment in higher education.  They are asking university students who have experienced, witnessed, or offered support to people experiencing racial harassment to complete their survey as they wish to understand whether students reported their experience of racial harassment and if they did, how this was dealt with.

For more information on the EHRC , please see https://www.equalityhumanrights.com/en

Newcastle University students are invited to complete the survey if they wish to take part.  However, it should be noted that the Equality and Human Rights Commission Student Survey will close on the 15th February 2019.
