Wolves SU Officer Team 21/22
Your full-time officers share a message of solidarity with all those effected by ongoing conflict in Ukraine and around the world.
As an officer team, we are deeply disturbed by the ongoing military tensions across the world, particularly by continuing developments in Ukraine and want to share a message of solidarity to all of those who have been affected by the ongoing conflict. Here at Wolves SU, we promote inclusivity, equity, respect and peace and entirely condemn all grave acts of aggression against innocent people. Further, we are sickened to hear of the discrimination against people of colour being shown at the Ukrainian borders, which we know is only adding to the anxiety.
This is a challenging time so want to assure you that we stand with you all and wish to support you in any way that we can. If you’ve been negatively impacted by the situation, we encourage you to reach out for support. We are here to help you, alongside the university support services.
At Wolves SU we firmly believe that all should be treated with equal respect and uphold a zero-tolerance policy for harassment of any kind. If you or anyone you know experiences or witnesses harassment on campus, please report it to security immediately, using 01902 322106. Echoing the words of Vice Chancellor Ian G. Campbell, “We must come together and help each other during these difficult times.”
We recognise that the ongoing crisis, both in Ukraine and worldwide, has numerous adverse effects. If you feel that your ability to perform is suffering as a result, please do not hesitate to reach out.
We will continue to do what we can as the situation develops and plan to hold a series of drop-in sessions for anyone affected by ongoing conflict.

Drop-In: Chat with Us
We understand that issues as great as war create varying levels of caution and anxiety, so we will be holding various drop-in sessions for those who have been directly and indirectly affected. This will be a time for us to listen to your concerns and learn what would make you feel more comfortable during your studies.
