Campus disputes over Hong Kong

Tuesday 30 July 2019

The University has been advised of recent disagreements and disputes on campus between students who have different views of the events in Hong Kong. We are in touch with the students who have been involved and a formal investigation is underway following a video and notifications sent to the Vice-Chancellor and other senior members of the University.

Campus Security has been briefed to ensure that neither the safety nor security of any member of the University community is placed at risk because of these differences.

The Vice-Chancellor expects all members of our community to abide by our commitment to academic freedom and freedom of speech. This means that while people may have different opinions on a matter, they must express those opinions in a manner that respects the rights and opinions of others. The University makes it very clear to students and staff that harassment, bullying, and discrimination are completely unacceptable.
