Bullying, discrimination & harassment: reporting form

You can submit a report on bullying, discrimination, harassment or sexual harassment if you are a University of Glasgow staff member, or on behalf of a University of Glasgow staff member.

This form will be sent to the Equality and Diversity Unit who will initially review each report.

If you would prefer to speak to someone, rather than submit a form, you may contact your local HR team.

Which of the following best describes the situation your report relates to:

Bullying is offensive, intimidating, malicious or insulting behaviour, an abuse or misuse of power through means that undermine, humiliate, denigrate or injure the individual.

Harassment is unwanted conduct related to a protected characteristic (for further detail on the protected characteristics, please see here), which has the purpose or effect of violating an individual’s dignity (e.g. racism, homophobia etc.)

Sexual harassment is any unwanted behaviour of a sexual nature that an individual finds offensive or which makes them feel distressed, intimidated or humiliated.

Sexual violence is defined as a sexual act committed against someone without that person's freely given consent. This includes completed or attempted acts.

Discrimination means treating a person unfairly because of who they are or because they possess certain characteristics.

Victimisation means treating someone badly or subjecting then to a detriment because they complain about discrimination or help someone who has been the victim of discrimination.

Please provide details of the report you would like to make (maximum 500 words). It would be helpful if you included information on: 

  • What has happened
  • Whether the report concerns a single incident or a series of incidents
  • Where and when the incident or incidents happened
  • Whether the incidents involve staff or students at the University of Glasgow

If you submit your contact details a member of University staff will contact you. This may be someone from the University’s Respect Advisers, the Equality and Diversity Unit or your local HR team who can explain the support the University can provide and the options available to you. Read our FAQ 'Will the information I share be kept confidential?.

If you decide not to provide contact details, we may be unable to address the issues raised within your report.


You can submit a report anonymously but if you do, we will not be able to:

  • Contact you (or the individual you are submitting a report for) in order to provide support
  • Investigate the report
  • Or take any form of disciplinary action
