Letter from the Department to the Vice Chancellor

Dear Stuart,

I am writing as the Head of Department of Classics and Ancient History on behalf of our Department to express our deep concern at the recent media reports concerning the penalties imposed on students who had posted rape threats and hate speech about other Warwick students. Such comments are totally in opposition to our Departmental values and the University’s commitment to equality, diversity and dignity for all students and staff. Given this, the decision to reduce the penalties originally applied to a one year suspension is hard to understand and has shocked and saddened us. We would like to express our deep sympathy and support with the students who were targeted by these posts, and abhorrence at such behaviour. While we recognise that there may be confidential information which you cannot disclose about the case, we urgently request an explanation of this matter to all staff and students. We remain committed to the safety and well being of our students and to ensuring a campus environment that fosters development and learning for all.


Yours sincerely,


Zahra Newby

Head of Department
