At LiU the principle is to manage abuse that has been experienced as close to the affected person as possible. For students, the director of studies or corresponding person is responsible for handling and, where relevant, investigating the occurrence of abusive treatment.
The student unions represent individual students.
LiU’s Equal Opportunities body can be contacted for consultation concerning legislation and details of the procedures followed during handling and investigation.
