Dignity and respect

The University has a strong and long-standing commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion and to promoting a positive culture which celebrates difference, challenges prejudice and ensures fairness.

Dignity and respect issues are regulated by the University policies. The University has a zero-tolerance stance towards any form of bullying and harassment.  If you think your dignity and respect have been violated, you should speak to your line manager in the first place. If this is not possible, you may want to speak to a dignity and respect advisor.

Dignity and Respect Advisors are available to talk to a member of staff during normal working hours. If you would like to speak to a DRA,  contact the DRA Coordinator at:

Email DRA Coordinator

Your details will be passed on to one of our trained advisors who will then contact you to arrange a meeting. To avoid any potential conflict of interest you will be assigned an Advisor outside your own School/Department where possible. If you prefer to meet with an Advisor of a specific gender, let the DRA Coordinator know when you make initial contact.
