Dignity and respect

Dignity and Respect Policy

Coventry University recognises that its employees and students have a right to be treated (and have an obligation to treat others) with dignity and respect so that the Institution is free from any form of harassment or bullying. The existence of any form of harassment can create a threatening and intimidating environment with adverse consequences for job and academic performance but, more importantly, for general health and well being. This is completely unacceptable and potentially unlawful and actionable.  The University will therefore adopt a zero tolerance approach to such action when proven.

Disabilities and health

Policy on the employment of people with disabilities or long-term health conditions

The University is committed to being a good employer of people with disabilities or long-term health conditions and to promoting a positive attitude on disability. It recognises that people with disabilities, whether obvious or unseen, face barriers in the workplace which can include assumptions, ignorance or the physical environment. This policy outlines the actions that the University is taking to ensure that people with disabilities or long-term health conditions are not unfairly treated.

Pregnancy, maternity and adoption

Policy on Support to Students: Pregnancy, Maternity and Adoption

Coventry University believes that becoming pregnant or caring for a child should not, in itself, detract from the student's experience or their success in studies. The University is therefore committed to showing as much flexibility as possible to facilitate students’ success, making sure no student is disadvantaged whilst ensuring academic standards are not compromised. The amount of flexibility that can be offered may vary between courses but all departments will follow the general approach set out in this document.
