Supporting staff and students
The University provides documentation that details best practice if you receive a report of assault, harassment, or bullying from a student or colleague, including gender-based violence.
Broadly, both guidance documents set out three steps which should be followed in the event of a disclosure.
- Listen and be supportive.
- Complete the University online reporting form.
- Provide details of available support. Options for internal and external support are provided in the guidance documents.
If you receive a disclosure from a student or colleague and do not feel comfortable, please contact a First Responder who will be able to act.
If you or someone you know requires urgent support:
- If you are off campus, you should call 999 to reach any of the emergency services.
- If you are on university premises, call Campus Security Team any time on 0141 330 4444.
- The school runs an internal mentoring scheme. All current and new staff are eligible to 'opt-in' to the scheme by completing the online mentor form Mentor scheme. On completion, a mentor will be assigned to you based on your needs.
