War in Ukraine

The war in Ukraine is of immense concern. We are an international University with a deep commitment to social responsibility and democratic values. We strongly condemn any acts of aggression and specifically the attack on Ukraine being carried out by the Russian government and armed forces.

As an inclusive community, we recognise that people across our University will be affected in many different ways. We would like to express our sorrow and sympathy for the Ukrainian people and all caught up in the conflict. We know that members of our community will continue to treat one another with respect, even in these deeply distressing times.
