Harassment of any kind involving staff, students or visitors, whether on or off campus, is unacceptable. Harassment can be defined as unwelcome, unsolicited and unreciprocated behaviour by a person or group that may offend, humiliate or intimidate another, and interferes with a person’s right to work or study in a non-threatening environment.

If you have a problem relating to an academic matter, you are encouraged to discuss the problem initially with the member of staff concerned. If you feel uncomfortable about doing this or are unable to resolve the problem satisfactorily, you may seek assistance from your Undergraduate Coordinator or your Professional Year Coordinator.

We encourage students to resolve their problem within the department. Go to UC's process, rights and responsibilities webpage or the Appeals and Grievances Regulations in UC Calendar for more information.
