Domestic and family violence

The University is committed to supporting students experiencing domestic and family violence to continue to participate in their study, ensuring at the same time that strict confidentiality and privacy is maintained.

Domestic and family violence issues hold profound significance within a university context as they intersect with students’ academic pursuits, well-being, and social dynamics. Addressing these issues acknowledges the reality that students may be experiencing or witnessing such violence. By raising awareness and providing resources, we not only help support affected individuals but also foster a culture of respect and safety. Moreover, tackling these issues educates future leaders and professionals, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to advocate for change and contribute to a society free from violence, both within and beyond the campus walls.
