To mark National Hate Crime Awareness Week we want to let you know that if you have experienced or witnessed harassment because of your race, age, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, faith or any other reason you can report it online at: www.coventry.ac.uk/harassment.
Harassment can take many forms, including hostility and intimidation, or violence towards you or your property. Please don’t be put off by the word ‘report’. You can submit anonymously, log it or request to meet with a Case Manager.
Sadie Chana is our Case Manager who specialises in religion-related harassment. Coventry University a friendly place – in our recent student survey 8 out of 10 students reported that they agree that people from different religious or non-religious beliefs get on well together and fewer than 1 in 10 students reported experiencing religious harassment. However, Sadie is here if you need anything.
We want to ensure you are getting the support you need to enjoy university life to its fullest. We need your help to identify recent, historic, on and off campus incidents. This information will help us to target campaigns and actions effectively and combat harassment and hate.
Come and meet Sadie or Amber in the Hub. They’ll be downstairs every afternoon between 1pm and 3pm on 15th – 18th October.
You can also search ‘Bystander’ on Moodle to take a module on how you can safely be an active bystander and ambassador for your fellow students to combat hate on campus.
