Abstract

New Spaces: Safeguarding Students from Violence and Hate

The Catalyst Fund enables The Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) to deliver strategic aims for Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) across teaching and learning, while driving innovation, collaboration, enhancing excellence and efficiency to support innovative solutions.

The New Spaces project was one of 60 projects to be awarded funding from HEFCE’s Catalyst Fund in response to a specific policy priority. This focused on tackling sexual violence, harassment and hate crime within Higher Education Institutions. The project ran from 2017-2018 and was based at The University of Northampton, through the Institute for Public Safety, Crime and Justice.

This project was a student-led, cross-disciplinary project and the research team involved academic staff from Law, Psychology and the Institute for Public Safety, Crime and Justice. A number of other academic and professional staff contributed to this report and the final recommendations presented. The current report was produced by the New Spaces research team at The University of Northampton and sent to HEFCE and the University Management Team following completion of the project.
