At Salford we want to be an anti-racist University. We believe that racism is under reported and we want to change this. If you have witnessed  racism or been a victim of racism (including micro aggressions)  it is important that you report it here. We will take it seriously and we will provide you with support.  
You may be concerned about the consequences of making a complaint in case it affects your relationship with the person concerned, or you may be worried that you might suffer victimisation for having brought the complaint. If you are concerned about this, please make this known when you make your complaint. University staff will then be able to work with you to decide how best to address your concerns.
 Remember all forms of racism are #NeverOK
We want to create a safe and inclusive campus for all here at Salford. The University of Salford and USSU believe that any form of violence, sexual harassment, discrimination and hate is #NeverOK. 

Acts of harassment and violence committed because of a person’s identity often start with negative attitudes, beliefs and stereotypes about other people. These beliefs are cultivated through exposure and repeated reinforcement by those around them and they can form prejudices. These prejudices can present in a variety of forms including: 

·       Dis/ableism 
·       Homophobia 
·       Racism 
·       Islamophobia 
·       Anti-Semitism 
·       Sexism 
·       Transphobia 
·       Classism 

Most harassment goes unchallenged and unreported. Perhaps the person feels frightened or that their complaint wouldn’t be taken seriously. If unchallenged these negative beliefs can lead to prejudicial and biased behaviour and potentially more serious acts of discrimination hate and violence. 

We want you to Speak Up, because sexual violence and harassment are #NeverOK. 

We are planning a number of campaigns around #NeverOK; we would love colleagues and students to be involved in helping us with planning and putting these events on. If you are interested get in touch with us at Report-It@salford.ac.uk
