There is no place for any form of harassment or sexual misconduct at the University of Cambridge. The University is dedicated to creating and maintaining a safe, welcoming, inclusive and diverse community that nurtures a culture of mutual respect and consideration.
The University has started a campaign called 'Breaking the Silence' which aims to:
• foster a zero-tolerance culture free from coercive behaviour, harassment and sexual misconduct
• provide support and guidance to members of the University affected by sexual misconduct
• handle allegations of harassment and sexual misconduct between students and employees
As a result, certain policies have been put into place and can be accessed here: www.breakingthesilence.cam.ac.uk
The Physics department is also starting Dignity@Phy which will enable members of the department to reach out for support regarding sexual assault and harassment. For more information, please contact Heather Goodwin our welfare officer at email@example.com.
