The Institute of Archaeology has signed the Zero Tolerance to Sexual Harassment pledge, making a commitment to challenge sexual harassment and support students and staff who experience it.

The pledge, as part of the UCLU Zero Tolerance to Sexual Harassment campaign, confirms that the Institute will not tolerate, condone or ignore sexual harassment of any kind. It has committed to:

  • educate students and staff about sexual harassment and why it’s never ok
  • support students and staff when they talk about, report or challenge sexual harassment

Students and staff are encouraged to report any incident of sexual harassment. Students are advised to talk to a member of staff in the department they feel comfortable discussing the matter with, who will be able to get advice on the various options available to them. Students can also talk to the UCLU Women’s Officer, the UCLU Rights & Advice Centre or the UCL Student Mediator who will be able to advise them further.

Sexual harassment and sexual violence are serious problems across the country. The Zero Tolerance to Sexual Harassment campaign represents UCLU’s attempt to tackle these problems at a grassroots level. We all have a responsibility to make our University a safe space for all students and staff.
