It ends now

Filed under: News — ckeitch @ 11.22 am

Zoe Garshong (SU President), Ernest Nyarko (VP Southend) and Maryhee Yoon (East 15 President) tell you about our upcoming report and support system.ends_now_banner_300x200 

We’ve been working with the University on the Tackling Sexual Violence, Harassment and Hate Crime Project to make it easier for you to report any instance of sexual violence, harassment and hate crime at our campuses.

In October 2017, we found an online report and support system that Goldsmiths and University of Manchester are using, which allows anyone to make a report anonymously, or to contact an adviser for information and support. This system is easy to use, mobile-friendly, and gets you the help you need. We’ve been working hard with Student Support and Human Resources to make sure our online report and support system has the right information, the right questions, and the right support, ready for it to go live in the Summer term.

Using this new system will make sure that your voices are heard and that the University will take any instance of sexual violence, harassment and hate crime seriously.  Whoever you are, and whoever you’re reporting, we will listen to you. It doesn’t matter if it’s someone in a position of authority, a member of staff, another student or someone from outside of our community. Whenever an incident is reported we will take proportionate action.

We want you to feel empowered to report an incident, and we hope that by making it easier to report, you will feel safer and know that we are all working together to make our community an inclusive and welcoming environment.
