THE BLACK-ADEMIC GUIDE TO HIGHER EDUCATION

By Renee Landell

"... If you have an accent don’t shy away from speaking...If you speak other languages, and just basic to no English, you are not illiterate, your bilingual ability is evidence of your intelligence...your name is beautiful!

DEBRIEF: RENEE LANDELL

by Michele Thiel

"I’d heard about Renee Landell long before I met her. Her reputation as an extremely successful Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) officer for the SU definitely preceded her.

RHUL Debate Society to host No-Platforming Debate following Katie Hopkins cancellation

Quoted by Michele Thiel

"Free speech belongs in universities because it is essential to democracy. But, free speech, bears responsibility and is therefore limited by hate speech. Opinions are fine. Racism, Islamophobia and the like cannot and should not ever be debated. Discussed, but not debated.”
