Harrassment Contact Persons

Report all harrassment to the harassment contact person

There are many types of harassment, and harassment can be experienced in your free time, during work placements or at campus by students or teaching staff or other staff. Harassment is one of the forms of discrimination, which includes, for example, sexual harassment rather than harassment by sex.
