Celebrate Black History Month

A number of events are taking place at the University throughout October in celebration of Black History Month, acknowledging history is being made not just during this month but every minute, every hour, every day, every week and month.

Black History Month has been celebrated in the UK for more than 30 years. It acknowledges signature moments in the history of the UK and is a celebration of the magnificence of cultural diversity and the enriching value in peaceful co-existence.

At Nottingham we are committed to supporting Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) for our staff and students and will be celebrating Black History Month virtually for 2020. We’d like to encourage everyone to get involved, join our celebrations and share details of the programme within their respective areas.

Details of what is happening in our university community can be found here

Sexual Consent Awareness Week

 Monday 26 October marks the beginning of sexual consent awareness week. It aims raise awareness of the importance of consent and challenging  the  myths around rape and sexual violence.

An additional aim is to promote the University Sexual Violence Liaison Officer (SVLO) Service. SVLO’s provide confidential advice and support to students affected by sexual harassment and or sexual violence. The university has provided this support since 2018, but last December a further 17 staff members received specialist training enabling the university to extent the service even further.

From this week onwards there is a dedicated SVLO appointment service available on Mondays and Thursdays. However, support is always available for students who are not able to make these dates.
