Bullying, harassment, discrimination and inappropriate treatment
Bullying, harassment, discrimination and other inappropriate treatment have no place in the university community – or any other place of work or study. Members of the community can take action to prevent and resist harassment and bullying. It is advisable to immediately intervene in harassment by confronting the person responsible. In the event of unsuccessful intervention or lack of courage to confront the person responsible, you may file a report via form or contact the harassment contact persons in the university or the Student Union.
The Student Union’s harassment contact persons are trained staff members of the Student Union. The university’s harassment contact persons can be found in the Prevention of bullying and harassment at the University of Oulu -guide. All conversations with harassment contact persons are confidential. Harassment contact persons support and advise students who have experienced harassment, and assist them in handling the situation. Harassment contact persons are not supposed to discipline persons accused of harassment nor to act as personal therapists for victims of harassment.
