Complaints in general
If you disagree with the way in which the UU has behaved towards you, you can lodge a complaint with the Humanities Complaints Coordinator.
Have you been the victim of inappropriate behaviour? Or did you see someone else being victimized? Do not hesitate to speak up. For instance, you can talk to your tutor, lecturer or Study Advisor. And you can also turn to the faculty of Humanities' contact for inappropriate behaviour, Stefan Vuurens. He will be able to advise you and help you take the next step if necessary.
If you prefer, you can also contact: Biene Meijerman, who is our staff contact for inappropriate behaviour. In the event of absence and during holidays, Stefan Vuurens and Biene Meijerman will act for each other.
Confidential Counsellor for inappropriate behaviour
If you would like to speak directly to the UU confidential advisor, you are of course welcome to do so! Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or check the website of Utrecht University's Confidential Counsellor for Inappropriate Behaviour.
Do not hesitate to take action
If you experience sexual or verbal harassment, discrimination, aggression, violence or bullying, don't spend too much time dealing with it! You can talk about it with a tutor, lecturer or study advisor. Would you rather talk to someone else? Then contact Stefan Vuurens, our faculty's contact for inappropriate behaviour. He will be able to help you no matter what.
Inappropriate behaviour beyond our university
If you have had to deal with inappropriate behaviour beyond UU, but you encounter the person(s) involved at UU, feel free to report this via Contactpersoon-ongewenstgedragStudenten.email@example.com.
What happens after you contact us?

- Together you decide what to do next. Your call will be registered anonymously.
- Annually, the confidential counsellors publish an anonymous report about the number of reports and their nature. The data cannot be traced back to individuals. The faculty board uses the information from the report for policy to prevent undesirable behaviour.
