Anti-Bullying Week (14-18th November 2016)
NDM Harassment advisors
NDM has 13 trained Harassment Advisors who are part of the University’s confidential harassment advisor network.
What can the harassment advisor do?
Listen to staff and students who believe they are being harassed, to clarify the options open to them and to assist them in resolving the matter informally where possible and provide similar support to those accused of harassment.
Where requested, support individuals throughout the resolution of their concerns. This may include discussing with the individual what they may wish to say or write to the person whom they feel has harassed or bullied them, or how they might approach a senior member of staff for assistance in resolving the issue. This list is not exhaustive, but includes empowering and supporting the individual.
Deal with all cases with the utmost confidentiality except in cases where there is an unacceptable risk to a member of staff, student or to the institution.
The harassment advisor cannot:
approach the alleged harasser in an attempt to mediate or resolve the matter for you;
act as your representative or advocate; or
be involved in any formal stage of the process, be it in writing the formal complaint, the investigation, disciplinary or grievance procedures, except by way of giving you the support you need during this time.
