UNIVERSITY NEWS LAST UPDATED : 04 JUNE 2020
A joint statement from Birmingham City University and our Chancellor Sir Lenny Henry.
We recognise the enormity of recent events in the USA, and the impact these events will have had on members of the Birmingham community, including our own BCU students, staff and alumni. We recognise that these events are not confined to the 21st century, or to the USA, but are a product of systems spanning many countries and times, including right here in the United Kingdom.
Universities hold important roles in their societies; to uncover new knowledge, to reveal what can be unwelcome truths and to stand with their communities.
We stand with our black students and our staff. We want to be part of the solution. And we will not stand by and tolerate racism, and we offer our full support to anyone who is affected by racism in any form.
