Tackling online harassment and promoting online welfare



UUK, working together with the University of Bedfordshire, has developed Changing the Culture: Tackling online harassment and promoting online welfare as an extension of UUK's work to help universities tackle harassment, hate crime and gender-based violence. This guidance outlines a set of principles to support universities to prevent and respond to online harassment occurring between students.


Accompanying this guidance: 

  • case studies of what universities are already doing to address online harassment

  • literature review, for a more detailed exploration of research into online harassment 

  • useful resources for reporting incidents and supporting people affected by harassment
