Gender-based violence

Protocol against sexual harassment and harassment on grounds of sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression by the Autonomous University of Barcelona
 
Agreement by the Governing Council of 10 March 2016. By approving this protocol, the UAB joins other Catalan universities which already have mechanisms to confront and prevent sexual harassment and harassment on grounds of sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression among the university’s community, including the student body.
 
The protocol applies to all students of UAB and all staff currently employed or who have had labour or statutory relationship with UAB. It also applies to all staff from external companies contracted by the UAB to provide their services within the university’s facilities, and all persons who enjoy services provided by the University or engage in activities within the campus.

Any individual who knows about a case of harassment, whether he or she is the victim, may start the procedure by submitting a request for the attention of the Rector to convene the Technical Advisory Commission. The request, which shall be accompanied by a closed envelope containing the description of the facts, can be submitted in any office of the University’s General Registry, such as Academic Administration Offices, Teaching Units, or the Central Administration and Executive Offices (Building A).
