Dignity and Respect
Here at Kent, we want to make sure everyone is treated with dignity and respect. Therefore, we have taken a few proactive steps to ensure you are well informed and know about the support available.
Expect Respect e-module
We want to make sure you’re fully informed when it comes to treating everyone with dignity and respect.
So we have created the 'Expect Respect @ Kent’ e-learning module on Moodle which all students must complete within six months of arriving at Kent.
These skills will not only help you at University but throughout life and in the workplace.
U.N.I (You and I) Protect
See something? Say something. Do something! You can make a difference!
The University and Students’ Union developed the U.N.I (You and I) Protect training programme to equip you with the skills to recognise and safely challenge harmful behaviour, including sexual harassment or abuse.
What is U.N.I protect?
- helps you to recognise and challenge any problematic and harmful behaviour such as sexual harassment or abuse;
- equips students with the skills to be 'active bystanders' so that they can intervene safely and with confidence;
- promotes a culture of dignity and respect across the University;
- ensures that students are aware of the help and support available, both from the University and from external organisations, should they (or someone they know) need it.
We can all take action to protect each other and the wider University community
If you have any questions or queries, please email email@example.com.
