The men’s student rugby club circulated a leaflet at the Freshers’ Fair that included many reprehensible statements, including misogynistic and homophobic comments. The immediate response included statements from the School and the Students’ Union condemning the leaflet, followed by the SU disbanding the club, and the School carrying out a disciplinary investigation of the students whose profiles appeared in the leaflet. The incident has raised broader questions for the School community as a whole, which includes how common are such views among the student body, as well as how can the School tackle such views.
This session will be led by Peter Howlett, the Dean of Undergraduate Students, and Carolyn Solomon-Pryce, Equality and Diversity Manager, and will encompass much of the broader discussions taking place within the School over the past month.
There will be a sandwich lunch provided prior to a prompt start at 12.30. If you’re interested in attending please book a place asap via the training portal: https://apps.lse.ac.uk/training-system/userBooking/course/7435032
