The University of Lincoln Student Support Centre has been running a HEFCE-funded project to raise the awareness of hate crime to the student community.

The impact has been a substantial increase in the level of reporting - hate crime as well as bullying and harassment - and has increasingly empowered students to say "it's not OK!"
