Equality and Diversity
Bangor University is committed to providing a safe and supportive environment where all students are treated with dignity and respect. We believe that you should be able to live and study in a University where you can be yourself, get involved in every opportunity and reach your full potential.
We believe that no student should have to experience any form of harassment, sexual violence, hate crime or racial abuse and it is not a normal part of the student experience. We work continuously to raise awareness of our expected behaviours so that students know that as a University, we will step in and address matters using our disciplinary procedures when it’s necessary.
We encourage and welcome our students to come forward and tell us about any form of negative behaviour they have experienced, including anything which has occurred online. A dedicated member of staff, our Student Equality and Diversity Officer, based in Student Services is always ready to listen and provide confidential and non-judgemental advice and support and our online ‘Share and Support’ platform makes it easier than ever to tell someone about negative behaviour.
We understand that formal action isn’t always what you want or need, so we’re always led by the you in terms of what happens next and if you just want to come and tell us about something, to be supported, then that’s ok. The University will, however, take all formal reports seriously and with the full permission of the student(s) affected, we’ll investigate matters and take action as appropriate.
You can visit a special section of our Inclusive Community webpages for more information on all forms of harassment and abusive behaviour.
To learn more about a particular subject, the following online booklets, developed by our Equality and Diversity service, provide plenty of useful information.
