Queen Mary University of London is committed to creating an environment for work and study where staff and students are treated with dignity and respect, and where bullying and harassment are not tolerated.
In support of its values, Queen Mary takes a zero tolerance approach to all forms of behaviour from staff, students or visitors that might violate the dignity of others. Zero tolerance means that Queen Mary will never tolerate, condone or ignore bullying, harassment or hate crime of any kind. We recognise that these behaviours can take many forms, they may be carried out face-to-face, through electronic media (cyber bullying), or they may be subtle or overt abuses of power. All members of Queen Mary have a collective responsibility to: encourage a culture of dignity and respect; to treat others fairly, with courtesy and consideration; and to challenge inappropriate behaviour when it is safe to do so.
Queen Mary Students’ Union’s (QMSU) launched the Zero Tolerance awareness-raising campaign on Saturday 17 March 2018.
Queen Mary and QMSU are working together to develop training for staff and students.
