Formerly 'Dealing with Bullying and Harassment'

The Department of Plant Sciences fully supports the University's policy to protect the dignity of staff, students, visitors to the University, and all members of the University community in their work and their interactions with others.

The Department expects all members of its community to treat each other with respect, courtesy and consideration at all times. All members have the right to expect professional behaviour from others, and a corresponding responsibility to behave professionally towards others.

The University of Cambridge's Dignity at Work policy statement explains this commitment and what action can be taken if its principles are not observed. Any complaints made about harassment, bullying or other inappropriate behaviour will be investigated thoroughly and without delay, according to the approved procedures. The Department has appointed advisors who are available for guidance and support, please see below:
