At the University of Agder (UIA), we wish to foster a culture which is based on responsibility and openness (cf UIA’s Strategic Plan and ethical guidelines). Speaking out about things which do not work, undesirable incidents, accidents/near-accidents, and reporting wrongdoing are all part of the measures required for developing a positive and acceptable work and study environment.
If you know about or have been made aware of wrongdoing at UIA, you are therefore encouraged to speak out about or give notice concerning them. This will provide those responsible with the opportunity to implement necessary steps and to avoid a recurrence of similar situations in the future.
Reporting – wrongdoing
For example: Violations of laws or rules, bullying, (sexual) harassment, a dangerous work environment, or suspicion of academic misconduct.
