University College Roosevelt (UCR) should be a safe environment for all its students and employees. UCR has a Code of Conduct – Rules of Behavior that applies to everyone who works or studies at UCR. Find those at the bottom of this page.

We do not tolerate any type of undesirable conduct, including sexual and general harassment, aggression, bullying, or discrimination. If you suspect a form of misconduct/inappropriate behavior by an employee or student of UCR, there are several ways to respond. The first is to discuss it with the person it concerns. Together you can try to come to an acceptable solution for the problem at hand. If you do not feel comfortable approaching the person it involves or if you tried, but you have not found a satisfying solution, the Confidential Advisor is the next step. Students and employees can discuss confidential matters with a Confidential Advisor. A Confidential Advisor can, though only with the client’s permission, mediate to either reach a solution or speed up the process. Confidential Advisors are bound to professional confidentiality. A Confidential Advisor will also refer to the correct authority within or outside the organization. The following video clip briefly explains what the role of a confidential advisor is:

University College Roosevelt has two different kinds of Confidential Advisors: a Confidential Advisor for Employees (external) and a Confidential Advisor for Students (internal).

 

Confidential Advisor for Employees

Employees who have complaints or questions about circumstances or events at work can go to the Confidential Advisor for Employees. These complaints or questions can be about misconduct/inappropriate behavior of a colleague or supervisor, the work atmosphere, or how complaints or issues are handled. Employees who suspect misconduct, where the public interest is at stake, can also contact the confidential counselor for information, advice, and support. Consider the following situations:

  • violation of legal regulations,
  • danger to public health
  • the threat to the safety of persons,
  • risk of environmental damage,
  • danger to the proper functioning of the civil service or company as a result of incorrect actions or negligence.
