The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) has launched an inquiry into racial harassment in higher education. Queen Mary University of London and the Queen Mary Students’ Union support this inquiry because we share the Commission’s view that to address racial harassment we need to understand better the experiences of students and staff, the barriers inhibiting universities to respond to reports of racial harassment, and good practice that is out there.

This inquiry includes a survey, the results of which will support the EHRC to develop recommendations for addressing the issue. Please complete the survey by Friday 15 February, and watch this video for more information.

Thank you for your support.
