Meet the teams

Meet the teams who are here to support you during your time at 海角社区 University

Duty, Assessment, and Inclusion

At the University, we have a team of experienced advisors who are here to provide responsive and timely support to students who have experienced any form of sexual violence.   

The team can offer emotional and practical support through private, 1-1 appointments and we work closely with external agencies including the Sexual Assault Referral Centre (SARC) and the Amber Project within to refer students for any appropriate long-term support. 

From January 2024, we will be supporting The Amber Project to run The Sexual Violence Recovery Toolkit here on the 海角社区 campus. This 12-week group programme uses鈥鈥痑nd a psycho-educational approach to enable people to move forward from the trauma of experiencing sexual violence.  

If you would like to talk to a member of the team, access any of the support mentioned and/or report an incident, please contact the team by emailing or calling 01509 227615. They are available to speak to Monday to Friday, 9am-5pm.  

Alternatively, you can complete the University’s  

Security team

The University’s Security team are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for 365 days a year.  They can be contacted on 01509 222141, or just flip over your Student ID card to find the number to call them.

As well as looking after students' safety, they also investigate complaints made about the conduct of students both on and off campus. You can report this using the online reporting system above.

When an incident has been reported, one of the team will contact you and discuss the incident. They will advise you of your options, which include support with reporting to the police or having the University investigate further.

Once they receive a complaint, they will take statements from all those involved, then interview the person you have complained about. The University uses ‘the balance of probability’ to assess whether there is sufficient evidence to prove a misconduct offence has occurred.

If the offence is proven, the University can apply a range of sanctions, whether educational or punitive, for instance recommending that the case be heard by a Student Misconduct Panel where termination of studies can be considered.
