VC Support

Prof. Debra Humphis speaks about it is important for universities to take the Pledge:



Vice-Chancellors express their committment  to supporting estranged students in their Pledge letters. 

Here are a few examples:

Prof. Elizabeth Treasure, Deputy VC, Cardiff University: 'Many of the barriers estranged students encounter are similar to care leavers. However, many of the issues are compounded by the fact that they don't have any support from Social Services as care leavers do.  By giving dedicated support to estranged students, we as a University believe we can make a difference in breaking down some of these barriers and improve the experience of estranged students through journey at Cardiff University.'

Prof. Janet Beer, VC University of Liverpool: 'I am pleased to support the Stand Alone Pledge and look forward to seeing the benefits of these measures for our students.' Read the VC's letter here.

All VC letters can be viewed on the webpage for each of the universities that have taken the Stand Alone Pledge.
