About the University of Leicester

Dignity and Respect at Leicester

The Dignity and Respect at Leicester Framework and associated policy documents outline with clear definitions and examples, what unacceptable behaviours are and the processes in place to address, deal with and report them.

The University has adopted both the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance definition of antisemitism and the All Party Parliamentary Group on British Muslim’s definition of Islamophobia, detailed in the Dignity and Respect at Leicester Definitions document (docx, 47kb).

Each member of the University community is expected to:

  • Behave with respect and courtesy at all times
  • Contribute to ensuring that the University is welcoming and safe
  • Ensure that their behaviour is not offensive, is free from harassment, bullying, abuse and discrimination.

Dignity and Respect at Leicester

What dignity and respect means to our university community.

To ensure we live up to our pledge, we have channels for staff and students to seek support and disclose any unacceptable behaviours they encounter during their time with us.
