Dignity Advisers – supporting our community


October 24th, 2019

The University has tripled the number of Dignity Advisers across our UK campuses to support staff and students who have experienced or witnessed harassment, bullying or victimisation.

Dignity Advisers are trained members of staff who volunteer from a wide range of backgrounds, disciplines and roles to help facilitate and support resolution within the framework of the Dignity at Nottingham policy to protect staff and students against harassment, bullying or victimisation.

Expanding the network of Dignity Advisers is part of the University’s commitment to tackle harassment and promote equality, diversity and inclusion as set out in the recently published EDI Strategic Deliver Plan. Pro Vice-Chancellor for Equality, Diversity and Inclusion, Professor Sarah Sharples said:

“I am delighted that so many staff have volunteered to help support their colleagues and maintain our culture of respect. Every individual in our University community has a role to play in challenging harassment, bullying or victimisation and to promote a culture of wellbeing.”
