At University of Twente we have an integrated perspective and approach on integrity policies. We have an integrated integrity programme called ‘House of Integrity’ to structure and organise various integrity policies, regulations and practices. Our House of Integrity approach covers scientific, social and business integrity.
On this page we will give 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.
You were a victim of or a witness to aggressive physical, verbal or psychological behaviour (including bullying) in the workplace or study place. In addition to actual pain, such as in the case of physical violence, aggressive verbal, physical and psychological behaviour at work can lead to psychological suffering and health issues such as anxiety, sleeping disorders, stomach pains and other psychosomatic complaints. It’s always best to talk to a professional soon after the incident occurs. See below for your options. It doesn’t matter which form of support you choose, what’s important is that you reach out and get help.
Students can contact a confidential adviser. More information is available via the website of Student Affairs Coaching & Counselling. Students (prospective or former student/external candidate) can lodge a formal complaint, appeal or objection via the UT Complaints Desk.
