Following our recent Facebook case, the University of Warwick has set up an Independent External Review to examine our student disciplinary and appeals process with a view to making reforms and improvements to our existing processes to be more robust and future-proof. The review is focusing on areas of sexual misconduct, hate crimes, racist or sexist and/or bullying behaviour.
The Independent external review is being led by Dr Sharon Persaud.
In parallel to the review, a Joint Council and Senate Advisory Group led by Vice-Chair of Council, Viki Cooke has been set up, to affirm Warwick’s values, review what is and is not acceptable behaviour in our community, and consider how we can encourage positive behaviours.
The Independent External Review and Joint Advisory Group will develop interim recommendations in May and align their work streams.
To support Dr Persaud’s review we are also seeking to understand current sector processes and policies, and would appreciate any information you are able to share with us.
Any information supplied will of course be treated confidentially.
