Yes to Respect

Campaigns play an essential role in the work of your Union and campaigning on issues like sexual harassment, hate crime and online harassment is a crucial part of creating a safe, inclusive campus for all.  

Working in partnership with the University and local community, your Students’ Union embraces diversity and is committed to communicating openly, honestly and respectfully at all times. We will always take a zero tolerance approach to all forms of harassment and hate crime. 

The Yes to Respect campaign aims to promote diversity, inclusivity and unity here at UCLan and we want students to work together for a shared goal, which is to promote and adhere to respecting each other, despite our differences. It also aims to prevent cases of sexual harassment by continuing to change attitudes and promote a safe campus for all. 

Everybody has the right to study, work and live in an environment where they feel safe and respected. 

We want students to: 

  • Feel able to challenge any discrimination or harassment they may encounter 

  • Feel comfortable coming forward to report incidents 

  • Feel supported by their Union and the University by dealing with reports effectively 

  • Be open-minded and treat others with fairness and respect, regardless of their background 

  • Always consider how our behaviour can impact others
