Clarissa Payne made this Freedom of Information request to University of Exeter

Automatic anti-spam measures are in place for this older request. Please let us know if a further response is expected or if you are having trouble responding.

University of Exeter did not have the information requested.

Dear University of Exeter,

How many student complaints, either formally through the Student Complaints process or through other channels such as Community Living offices, have you received in relation to bullying, harassment, unacceptable behaviour, disruption and/or any anti-social behaviour enacted or displayed by antifeminist or trans rights activist staff or students at your institution? How many complaints have you received from members of the public regarding similar behaviour by your staff or students?

What were the dates of those complaints? What were the outcomes to these concerns raised by students within your institutions, or by members of the public, about the behaviour of some of your staff and/or students?

Yours faithfully,

Clarissa Payne
