FullStop to harassment
One of the reasons we wanted to run this campaign was the fact that a lot of harassment and bullying isn't overt. Sometimes it's really just thoughtlessness or plain old meanness. Like making people feel they are not welcome because of their sexuality. It's a form of harassment and the University and SRC have joined forces to put a FullStop to bullying and harassment on Campus.
Our Dignity at Work and Study policy is simple:
The University of Glasgow is committed to fostering a working, learning and research environment where mutual respect and dignity is experienced by and between employees and students. The University aims to promote a culture where differences are welcomed, harassment and bullying are known to be unacceptable and where allegations are dealt with in fair and timely fashion, and without fear of victimisation.
FullStop will highlight the sorts of behaviour that can constitute harassment and bullying. And if you've got your own stories, please share them with us:
You can also speak in absolute confidence to one of the University's network of trained volunteers who are here to help. The Volunteer Harassment Network supports staff and students who think they may be experiencing bullying or harassment.
