At Anglia Ruskin University, we are committed to making sure that everyone in our community is treated with dignity and respect and these principles are supported by our corporate values.
Bullying, discrimination, harassment, hate crimes, sexual violence and domestic abuse can happen to anyone regardless of age, gender, race, sexual orientation, religion, class, or background.
At ARU we consider all of these behaviours unacceptable – we are working with the Students’ Union to tackle these issues in our student community and we want you to know that if you have experienced any of these, it is ok to talk to us and we will listen.
"The name of the campaign came about because we felt very strongly that people who have experienced sexual violence, harassment, hate crime and bullying shouldn’t be afraid to speak out about their experiences. We want the campaign to liberate people who may have lived in silence for a long time, or who have potentially been previously too afraid to report anything. We want the services to encourage people to make their voices heard; as a community, we will not let our collective voices be silenced any more."
