- House of IntegrityIn the past year, an integrated integrity programme called House of Integrity has been designed for UT. In addition to academic integrity, House of Integrity also covers social and corporate integrity. This email is the first in line of several activities in House of Integrity with which we want to contribute to the Shaping2030 target of being 100% compliance with the standards for integrity and safety.
One platform containing all relevant information about House of Integrity
Under the umbrella of House of Integrity, we plan to send frequent updates, tips, important facts and other information to ensure both academic and support staff are acquainted with the applicable UT regulations. It is important to us that our campus is a safe living, studying and working environment for all. Experiences to the contrary must be discussed and the options for getting the right assistance should be clear, unambiguous and easy to find. In addition to the fact that managers naturally play an important role in this and that we want to use them to promote an open environment for discussing dilemmas and issues. There is now a platform specially designed to contain all information about House of Integrity, from the various schemes and regulations to information about confidential advisors and the Ombuds Officer: www.utwente.nl/integrity.Read more
