    Teach all students about racism in Welcome Week

      Myself and students on other health related courses have seen and experienced racism at UCLAN. We believe that if all students are educated on what language is and is not considered racist, then this will help to reduce the use of this on campus. Some of this language has persisted in the British culture and now is the time to say NO MORE!! There is no excuse - education on this language and how it can hurt is a good start. If we have a session for everyone during welcome week, then expectations of what is acceptable is provided to all. Racism is unacceptable and we need to stamp it out.
