You can report a hate incident to the University’s Hate Incident Reporting Centre (HIRC). The HIRC can assist staff and students in reporting hate incidents or crimes to Essex Police. You can also report an incident directly to the police. To book an appointment with a trained Hate Crime Ambassador please email and someone will respond to arrange a suitable time.

You should report incidents to the University by contacting one of the following:

You are encouraged to report an incident to the University in the first instance, but if you do report an incident directly to the police, please ensure you also report the incident to the University by contacting one of the services mentioned above.
