Mat Robathan (Vice President Barts and The London) and Aphrodite Murray-Liddington (Vice President Science & Engineering) are working on a campus safety plan to improve safety on all campuses.
They are currently working on a letter to send to the Queen Mary Security team and Queen Mary Estates & Facilities team which outlines some of the areas of concern and some suggestions on what can be done to make campuses safer. This has involved contacting non-UK based campuses to ensure their security concerns and needs are also communicated.
Following this, they are hoping to work in partnership with Queen Mary security, estates and any other relevant partners on improving safety on all campuses.
Mat has also spoken about some of these safety concerns, particularly those affecting the Whitechapel campus, with local MP Rushanara Ali. He is hoping to continue these constructive discussions.
If you would like to find out more about this project please contact Mat or Aphrodite.
