In May 2015, the University appointed an Independent Panel to provide an external and impartial review of the effectiveness of our current policies and procedures around freedom of speech.

The Panel was to establish how the University could combine upholding freedom of speech with any forthcoming legal changes, as well as reviewing any wider implications for the University and sector. The Panel was chaired by Lord Kenneth Morgan, a former Vice-Chancellor of the University of Wales, and the report is now available and accompanied by a commentary from the Vice-Chancellor.
