Do you suspect domestic violence or child abuse involving a student? Consult this new protocol.

As of 1 January 2019, Utrecht University has a protocol for domestic violence and child abuse. If you suspect that a colleague or student at Utrecht University is dealing with such issues, please consult the protocol and related assessment framework.

The protocol explains how to deal with signs of domestic violence or child abuse, and which steps you can take yourself. This does not just concern suspected physical violence, but also suspected psychological and sexual violence and suspected neglect.
