Take action against Spotted: Glasgow University Facebook Pages

This petition had 145 supporters

Hannah Gower started this petition to Professor Anton Muscatelli (University of Glasgow) and

Whilst humour at University is almost a necessity to achieve a degree at times, especially during exam period, Facebook Spotted pages that encourage students to send in messages and comments that create an unwelcoming and at times a sexually harassing atmosphere to the University of Glasgow's library and other campus spaces are offensive and are a discredit to University's inclusive and equal opportunities reputation.

Previous action has been undertaken by the University against such "Spotted" sites and I hope such action can once again result in their removal and the restoration of safe, learning-focused atmospheres that spaces like the library and other campus areas are intended to be and not places where students should feel threatened by such language posted on social media.

I have included links to the "Spotted" pages that have used the University of Glasgow's name below:

1. Spotted: Glasgow Uni
https://www.facebook.com/SpottedGlasgowUniLibrary?fref=nf

2. Spotted: Glasgow Uni Gym
https://www.facebook.com/pages/Spotted-Glasgow-Uni-Gym/487377801298237?ref=br_tf

I hope that now the University are aware that such sites can be contacted and asked to remove their page's as to end such disrepute being brought to the University's name.
