One of the basic conditions for a good study environment and a good work environment is the existence of a culture characterised by respectful behaviour and a good tone of communication. At Aarhus School of Architecture, there is a clear expectation that all students and staff members should avoid abusive behaviour such as, for instance, bullying, harassment, discrimination, unequal treatment, threats of violence, etc. Aarhus School of Architecture, consequently, has a zero-tolerance policy towards the practice of these forms of behaviour.
The school’s management, students and staff have a shared responsibility to recognise and promote a culture based on a behaviour that is mutually respectful and inclusive. Consequently, the management, the staff, and the students must, on a daily basis, be attentive to whether abusive behaviour is taking place. And everyone is expected to assume a shared responsibility for intervening if they become aware of any such behaviour taking place. Everyone at Aarhus School of Architecture, at all times, has the right to object to actions or statements that they feel constitute abusive behaviour. We also encourage you to report any abusive behaviour you might experience or witness.
All reports of abusive behaviour will be taken seriously. You are, of course, welcome to contact us confidentially or anonymously if you so wish.
