Codes of conduct

The School of Physics expects all of our staff, students, and visitors to abide by our Code of Conduct. This document compliments University College Cork's Code of Conduct, Duty of Respect and Right to Dignity at Work policy, and the Gender Identity and Expression policy.


In the case that a student/member of staff has experienced any form of bullying, harassment or sexual harassment, University College Cork has established supports and procedures for reporting and resolving these incidents. The exact details can be found on pages 10-20 of the Duty of Respect and Right to Dignity at Work document published by University College Cork.

The policies and procedures for reporting any grievances or whistle blowing are detailed here:
Grievance policy for staff.
Whistle blowing policy for staff.

If any of our staff or students wish to submit anonymous feedback on issues they have been experiencing or improvements within the School they'd like to see, a form is available at this link. The responses to this form are visible to the members of the EDI committee.
