Many of our University community, particularly those with friends, family or close ties to the region, will be deeply concerned about the escalating violence and loss of life in Israel and Gaza over recent days.
The University is contacting all those staff and students from the region to remind them that we are there for them and to let them know of the support and assistance that we can offer. In line with our values we reaffirm the importance of mutual understanding and tolerance at this very difficult and distressing time.
Any and all forms of racism, antisemitism, islamophobia, discrimination, and abuse have no place in our community.
There are extensive resources for wellbeing and other sources of support on our conflict and humanitarian disasters site for anyone who might be affected.
