Events and workshops

  • Panel discussion: Speak Up Against Violence and Abuse

    26/11/2018

    A new campaign has been launched to help UWE Bristol students speak up and report unacceptable behaviour such as harassment, discrimination and violence. Speak Up has been introduced this term to raise awareness and prevent these types of incidents on campus.

    In recognition of the UN International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women (25/11/18), UWE Bristol is hosting a panel discussion to continue conversations around violence and abuse.

Bystander programme get trained up

We’re running training where you can learn about the prevention of sexual violence and harassment in university settings. If you do this training, you'll have the key tools to be an active bystander in different situations and will learn how to intervene in a safe way. Sometimes that means getting someone else involved – calling someone or reporting the incident to the University. Be part of the changing culture, be an active bystander.

The Bystander Programme at UWE Bristol is being piloted in 2018/19 with:

  • all first-year undergraduates in the Department of Education and Childhood in the Faculty of Arts, Creative Industries and Education (ACE)
  • students studying Criminology and Sociology in the Faculty of Health and Applied Sciences (HAS).
