We believe that everyone has the right to live, study and work in a safe and supportive environment. That everybody is free from abuse, harassment and/or assault. We strive to promote a safe campus and safe city. As part of that, we have developed Never Ok.
Never Ok aims to:
To foster a culture where there is zero tolerance for sexual harassment, abuse or assault against anyone.
To enable frank, open and honest discussions about issues and provide clear signposting to training and support for all.
To support and engage with our wider communities beyond the campus to challenge negative behaviour and promote a safe culture for all.
UEA and UEASU have zero tolerance towards:
Sexual assault and harassment. Unwelcome sexual advances, verbal, written or physical contact without consent.
Relationships/Domestic Abuse. Emotional or physical behaviour by a person in a relationship to control another.
Harassment and Bullying. Any unwanted behaviour that makes someone feel intimidated, degraded, humiliated or offended.
Honour crimes, FGM, Forced Marriages. Enforced activities, including marriage, mutilation or violence against women.
UEA and UEASU are committed to providing a safe environment to all students, staff and visitors.
