A host of events will be taking place at the University of Worcester next week to tie in with National Anti-Bullying Week.

Diversity Week aims to raise awareness of the different types of bullying.

From November 19th until November 22nd, a series of events are taking place at the University’s St John’s campus, organised by the Student Experience Team.

United by the slogan Bullying Sucks, the campaign aims to show that “different is not scary, it is exciting and interesting”.

During Diversity Week students will receive information and advice on a range of issues including, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transexual (19th November), bullying (20th November), religion (21st November) and disability (22nd November).

As part of the day dedicated to diversity in religion, The Revd Dr Fiona Haworth, the University of Worcester’s Chaplain, will present a talk discussing the Golden Rule and how all faiths can unite against bullying.

Students will be able to find the Student Experience Team and the information stands in the Students’ Union building and St John’s Main Reception.
