 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
Listen
If someone tells you that they have experienced sexual harassment, taking the time to listen to them can make all the difference.  You don’t have to know exactly the right thing to say or what to do – just listen.  Try to keep your own reactions more muted and allow space for their feelings, without judgement. 
 
If it really isn’t the right time, arrange a different time and a suitable place to hear them out.  If for some reason you are not able to listen, explain this and offer to help support them in finding support elsewhere. 
 
You don’t need to try to solve the problem.- support them while they manage their feelings, explore their options and decide what to do.  
 
It is really important to accept their choices even if it is not what you think you might do in their situation. 
 
 
If you are worried about them, don’t ignore your feelings – get some support yourself to find out what to do next. 
 
You can report it to the University using this form.
