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.

近日,学校了解到校园内有学生就香港事件有不同看法,产生争议纠纷。校园安全部门已知悉情况,会确保学校内任何人员的安全不会因这些差异而面临危险。

我们正与争议事件中的学生联系,在向校长和其他学校高层发送视频和通知后,学校对此事展开正式调查

校长希望所有学校人员都能遵守我们对学术自由和言论自由的承诺。这意味着,人们就某一问题可以有不同观点,但在表达其观点时,必须尊重他人的权利和观点。学校向学生和教职工清楚表明,绝不允许滋扰、欺凌和歧视现象。
