The University does not tolerate any form of harassment or victimisation and expects all members of the University community, its visitors and contractors to treat each other with respect, courtesy and consideration. Harassment is defined in the University’s Harassment Policy.The English Faculty fully endorses this position. We seek to provide a positive and enriching environment for all our students and staff, and we expect our members to contribute to that environment, free from harassment.
If you have experienced an incident, or repeated incidents, of harassment, there are many people who are here to help you. You may want to discuss it with a tutor, a member of your college welfare team or a college harassment advisor. The University also has a network of confidential harassment advisors who can offer support. The current harassment advisors at the English Faculty are Dr Annie Sutherland and Professor Matthew Bevis. The Humanities Division Equality and Diversity Officer, Dr Machilu van Bever Donker, is also a harassment advisor and mental health first aider. You can also speak to a Harassment Advisor outside your College or Faculty – contact details are available on the University website.
