Report it

Tackling hate crime is a high priority for the University of Sunderland in London. That's why we've set up the reporting tool, to help you study without the fear of harassment.

Tackling Hate Crime: Stay safe. Report it. Get supported.

Every student should be able to study without worrying about harassment. 

As a student with us, you have access to the online reporting tool and confidential, face-to-face support so you can feel safe to say when something has happened. 

Plus, as part of your induction into our community, you'll get Bystander training - giving you the knowledge and confidence to become an 'active bystander'. 

You'll learn how to report incidents of hate and find out about the help and resources you can access as a victim or witness to any form of interpersonal violence, harassment, bullying or hate crime.

Report an incident through the Students' Union's Report it! tool or get in touch with our Health and Wellbeing team.

What is a hate crime?

A hate crime is any criminal offence perceived by the victim, or any other person, to be motivated by hostility or prejudice towards an aspect of a person's identity or perceived identity, mainly involving race, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity or disability.

The University of Sunderland in London is a community of dignity, respect and inclusivity, and we work to make sure it always is.
We actively encourage you to report any concerns or incidents you experience or see.

The aim is to create a supportive environment that matches our history of equality, diversity and inclusion.

That's why we want you to know how to raise issues of gender-based violence, hate crimes and harassment, as well as how you can get support.
