Universities of Sanctuary

Universities of Sanctuary is an initiative to recognise the good practice of universities which welcome people seeking sanctuary into their communities and seek to foster a culture of awareness and inclusivity.

The University of Essex is committed to providing an environment where everyone feels safe and welcome, with equal opportunities for all; regardless of background.

Becoming a University of Sanctuary brings a wealth of benefits to an institution, its students, staff and the local community; enriching campus life by bringing new perspectives and cultures together.
