Whistle for help

The new University code of practice on whistleblowing is up and running following approval by Senate and Council. The new code provides University staff and students with an internal route for them to raise concerns about malpractice.

It also provides information about legal protection for anybody taking their complaints beyond the campus. The underlying theme of the code is that the University encourages, and will support, responsible whistleblowing.

The policy also details how the University will respond to any concerns expressed about malpractice or impropriety. In general, staff with concerns should contact the Registrar and Secretary Dr David Robinson, though issues may be raised a number of other ways.

The full code is on the Reporter website. For more information contact Melody Mellor in the Secretariat on ext 4062 or view the code of practice on whistleblowingMore
