Harassment and Sexual Misconduct: Our Response

Training was provided to staff of Liverpool Hope by Durham University before the Ofs expectations were released. As a result of this training session and being impressed by Durham’s approach to monitoring H&SM the decision was made to replicate a similar model at Hope in view of good practice.

In particular, we recognise the connectedness of our staff and students in monitoring and preventing H&SM. This report therefore combines in one place the efforts Hope makes to ensure our campus is a safe and welcoming place to be. The report does this by bringing together the five standards we as a University set to ensure our approach to H&SM is effective. These sit alongside our actions to date which are directly linked to the recent Ofs statement of expectation.

Hope Standard 1: Expectations of the University and monitoring

Hope Standard 2: Reporting and disclosing instances of harassment and sexual misconduct are uncomplicated

Hope Standard 3: Investigatory procedures are fair and independent

Hope Standard 4: All involved receive appropriate support

Hope Standard 5: Training needs & Behavioural expectations are set out to the whole University Community
