Dignity at Work and Study
We aim to promote a working, learning and research environment and culture in which differences are welcomed and harassment and bullying are known to be unacceptable.
We operate a zero tolerance approach to behaviours of harassment, bullying and victimisation. This means that any reports of bullying, harassment or victimisation will be treated and dealt with seriously, regardless of the seniority of those involved.
If an individual who is neither a member of staff nor a student of the University wishes to raise an issue under this policy they should use the following methods:
- where the complaint relates to the behaviour of a Cardiff University student, this should be raised under the Student Behaviour Procedure, which can be found at Section 2.10 of the University's Academic Regulations
- where the complaint relates to the behaviour of a member of Cardiff University staff this should be raised with the appropriate Head of School/Professional Service.
The Education (No 2) Act 1986 places a responsibility upon the University to protect and promote freedom of speech as far as practicably possible and within the law for staff, students and visiting speakers. The University has in place measures to ensure the exercise of freedom of speech does not amount to unlawful harassment.

Our Dignity at Work and Study Policy is part of a University-wide approach that promotes a working, learning and research environment and culture in which differences are welcomed and all forms of harassment, bullying and victimisation are not tolerated.
