At ARU, we are committed to making sure that everyone in our community is treated with dignity and respect and these principles are supported by our corporate values.
Bullying, discrimination, harassment, hate crimes, sexual violence and domestic abuse can happen to anyone regardless of age, gender, race, sexual orientation, religion, class, or background.
Unsilenced is our online reporting tool to make it easier for students to tell us their situation so we can respond and offer support if the student wishes.
We consider all of these behaviours unacceptable and we work with the Students’ Union to tackle these issues in our student community and we want you to know that if you have experienced any of these, it is ok to talk to us and we will listen.
Get emergency help. If you are in immediate danger or seriously injured, you can call 999 (or 112 from a mobile).
Find a safe space. If an incident has just happened try and find somewhere that you feel safe. If you are on campus and are scared or fearful you can contact Security using SafeZone or by calling 01245 68 6666.
We understand that it can be distressing if you have been accused of bullying, harassment, sexual violence, discrimination or a hate crime.
The Harassment Support Network (HSN) is here if you have been affected by any unacceptable behaviours and want to talk to us.Find out more
