Student Services launch new online tool for reporting incidents
Loughborough University’s Student Services has launched an online tool for reporting incidents affecting students.
The tool can be used to report incidents of:
- Domestic violence (including honour-based)
- Bullying and harassment
- Hate incidents (including racism, homophobia, etc.)
- Sexual violence
- Mental health and wellbeing (including self-harm and suicide attempts)
- Problematic substance misuse
- Other welfare concerns
All incidents reported will be handled by trained specialist support staff based in Student Services.
When reporting an incident, you can decide how much information you include – including whether you want to identify yourself or remain anonymous. You can submit a report for yourself or someone else, and staff can also report on behalf of students.
You can also indicate what support you would like to receive from the University, if any.
Whilst we understand writing things down and submitting a report can be intimidating, it is important that students feel they are able to report if something happens to them or someone else.
Manuel Alonso, Associate Chief Operating Officer and Director of Student Services, discusses how the new tool plays a part in ensuring a safe and welcoming environment for all.
