The Definition was adopted on 22nd November 2019.
The University has told Campaign Against Antisemitism that it does apply the Definition in disciplinary matters, confirming that: “All such definitions will be applied by the University in a manner which is consistent with our legally-binding commitments to freedom of speech and to the rights of all students and staff to discuss difficult and sensitive topics.”

As part of its response, the University provided minutes of a meeting of its Board of Trustees on 22nd November 2019, which show that the Definition was adopted (see item 16). Additionally, the University published a statement on its website on 6th December 2019.
