On Tuesday 7th November , 2017, the Guild of Students welcomed the opportunity to host a review meeting of the ‘graffiti’ incidents which occurred within the Guild building from November 2016 through to March 2017.
The meeting included representatives from West Midlands Police (WMP), the Jewish Society, the Union of Jewish Students, the Community Security Trust and the Guild.
The discussion concentrated on the sequence of incidents that took place, reporting and the communication to all affected students; and how in the future this could be dealt with differently, in order to support those affected.
WMP also confirmed the action
s taken as result of the incidents, including investigation and resolution. Guild President, Ellie Keiller, said “the meeting was difficult for those involved, but ultimately there is a better understanding of the sensitivities surrounding the incidents. We look forward to working with our colleagues to improve processes in the future”.
