The University of Southampton

A statement from the Vice-Chancellor on events in the USA

Published: 5 June 2020

The University of Southampton stands firmly against racism and violence towards members of the black and minority ethnic community both at our University and across the globe.

The death of George Floyd in the US is another tragic reminder of the ongoing inequalities and prejudices in society, which should not be tolerated.

Our University is committed to fairness and equality across all aspects of society and we strive to understand and correct for these inequalities. We recognise that racism and discrimination is not fleeting but has cultural roots, and through our Race Equality Charter we will continue to collaborate, challenge and proactively address racism.

Our mission is to educate and influence for a better future for all. Inclusivity and diversity are at the heart of our One Southampton community.
