Safety and Respect
The university affirms the right of every student to feel safe and respected; we also acknowledge that discrimination, harassment and other incidents do occur.
When things go wrong and you feel you have not been respected, you need to know your options.
It's sometimes not ok to just ignore and do nothing. Taking steps can possibly help you;
- Resolve the issue amicably
- Prevent others experiencing a similar issue
- Contribute to a change in systems or processes
The University has policies and procedures to help you navigate a way forward when respect has been damaged. Be familiar with these so you can not only assist yourself but also others. A community has to build respect and we are all responsible.
