Reporting an incident
We are dedicated to providing you with an inclusive and supportive environment, and do not tolerate acts of violence or any language or behaviour that leaves others feeling embarrassed, harassed, bullied, abused or discriminated against.
If you do see or experience unacceptable behaviour please report it to one of the following members of staff:
- the Student Policy Team in Student Services via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
- a member of faculty or service staff working within, or responsible for, the location in which an incident has taken place
- an Information Point
- a Personal Tutor or Programme Manager
- UWE Bristol Advice Centre at The Students’ Union.
Making a formal report
In cases where the perpetrator of abuse is another UWE Bristol student, action may be taken under the University’s Student Disciplinary Procedures.
We understand that making a formal report can be overwhelming. In such circumstances, a member of the Student Policy Team will be happy to meet with you, without taking names or any details that may identify the individual(s) concerned, to discuss what has been happening and the implications and possible outcomes of making a formal report.
Reported incidents will not be recorded on your student record.
Please contact the Student Policy Team to arrange an informal meeting or to make a formal report via email at email@example.com.
Please contact UWE Bristol's Wellbeing Service if you need emotional support on +44 (0)117 32 86268.
