Statement from the Vice Chancellor
"At Leeds Beckett we have a firm moral and academic commitment to freedom of speech and enquiry. Our academic colleagues conduct research in areas where there are competing views: issues related to cultural identity in a multi-cultural society is one of them.
"Having the freedom to question, examine and challenge is part of living in a democracy. The work of academics and universities is critical in stimulating agenda-setting debates in a progressive society, and an important pillar of a good university education."
