University disciplinary processes under the microscope
This year’s Sexual Abuse and Sexual Violence Awareness Week has come at a highly relevant time for the higher education sector, with university discipline investigations in the spotlight of late. But behind the headlines, universities are working hard to make improvements in how incidents are handled and resolved.
As the week draws to a close the timing’s perfect to highlight the hard work of stakeholders working tirelessly to support cultural change in the HE sector, underscoring the work of UUK in collaboration with other stakeholders including SVLO training provision and support by Lime Culture, the work of Vault Connect as a secure encrypted data repository to best secure information, Report and Support at the front end and Indico for their evidence standard recording equipment.
If you need any advice or support the sooner you contact the better, limit exposure to reputational damage and punitive costs – so often it’s not the result in question more the process followed to secure it.
