and Support allows anyone who has experienced sexual violence, harassment, or
misconduct of any kind to report or disclose incidents to the University. If
you’ve been subjected to any form of misconduct, you can tell us anonymously
through Report and Support.
We are working
hard to make Edinburgh Napier University a better, safer and more equal place
to work and study.
Report and Support helps us do this by allowing our students and staff to
disclose misconduct anonymously.
These are the types of behaviour that can be reported through Report and
There are two types of reports that can be made
through Report and Support: anonymous reporting and reporting to an adviser:
This option allows survivors of misconduct to
anonymously report an incident. Personal details about the perpetrator and
survivor will not be taken at this time. This option provides the University
with unidentifiable information which can be used to create a picture of any
issues arising on campus. This information cannot be used to pursue complaints
or begin a legal process. Please note that we will not be able to offer direct
advice or begin an official complaint process.

to make an anonymous report.
Reporting to an adviser
Reporting to an adviser is the second option that
is available through Report and Support for survivors of misconduct. This will
give survivors the opportunity to disclose personal details about themselves,
the perpetrator, and the incident. If a report is made to an adviser, a
specially trained staff member from Edinburgh Napier will respond. They will work with the survivor to take
appropriate action and seek a resolution.

Guidelines for staff - what to do if a student tells you they have been sexually harassed or assaulted
Support for students who have experienced sexual violence is
a specialist matter and non-specialist staff are not expected to provide in
depth or on-going support. However a student who has experienced sexual
violence or harassment may decide to disclose it to any member of staff. These
short guidelines have been created to assist staff who may need to have such a
conversation and refer the student on for more specialist support elsewhere.
