Exeter considers it supremely important that no student (or anyone else) experiences discrimination due to race, gender, sexuality, disability, or any other unjust grounds.
In recent years Exeter has developed an impressive track record in encouraging discussion on feminist and LGBTQ issues, with the JCR playing a vital role in the creation of the ‘Cuntry Living’ magazine, a student-led publication dedicated to promoting feminist debate within the University. Furthermore, Exeter’s LGBTQ community hosts a wide variety of fun events, including Text-A-Cocktail and weekly drinks.
However, despite these successes there is more that Exeter can do to expand discussion and debate within the University. The number of recent controversies about the Oxford admissions procedures, relating to possible racial and class discrimination, would suggest that now is a good time to encourage discussion about such issues within Exeter College and the University as a whole.
