Dignity at Work and Study
Those who believe they have been treated in a way which threatens their dignity should in the first instance try to deal with the matter informally, where necessary involving a senior member of staff or tutor. Frequently all that will be needed is an explanation that behaviour is damaging or hurtful, followed by an apology. In some cases it may be helpful for the University's Mediation Service to be used to find an informal solution.
Where the matter cannot be dealt with informally, students may make use of the University's Student Complaints Procedure. In appropriate cases disciplinary action may follow. All issues will be dealt with in confidence.
