Do you feel safe on campus?

By Cecilie Grut 31. May 2024

We hope so. Unfortunately, we know that some are subjected to bullying, harassment, or abuse at school, and that's not how it should be. YOU can help!

Everyone should feel safe on campus

It should be a matter of course that you feel safe at school, but we know that some have experienced things that have made them both angry and scared. Know first and foremost that you or the person you are helping can come to SSN's advisers on campus for conversation and support, and potentially help with taking the matter further. It is important that we take such feedback seriously.

We are committed to ensuring that all students feel safe on campus.

Together for safe and inclusive campuses

It is incredibly important to support and speak up if you see someone being bullied, harassed, or persecuted. It can truly make a difference in a person's life. The attitude fight is about creating a culture where we do not accept such negative actions. We must be brave and stand up for each other. Together, we can create a safe and inclusive campus environment.

If you see someone being harassed, it is important to act. Here are some steps you can follow:

  1. Assess the situation: Quickly assess the situation to ensure your own safety and determine if you should intervene.

  2. Speak up: If it is safe to do so, inform the person being harassed that you see what is happening and that you are there to support them.

  3. Get help: If the situation escalates or if you feel unsure, seek help from a staff member on campus.

  4. Document: If possible, collect evidence by taking photos or noting down what is happening. This can be useful later if the victim wishes to report the incident.

  5. Support the victim: After the situation has calmed down, check how the person who was harassed is doing and offer support. It may be important for them to know that someone cares.

Report it

Report it is a service to improve safety and security. Here you can report any undesirable incidents (deviations).

Examples of incidents that must be reported:

  • Damage to people or material

  • Bullying, sexual harassment, threatening situations and criminal offences such as violence, theft, robbery etc.

  • Computer fraud and sensitive information in the wrong hands

  • Failure or deficiencies in safety and security procedures or technical security measures

  • Violation of laws, regulations and internal procedures

Here you can report adverse events to USN.

Remember that it is important to act in a way that is safe for yourself and others. If the situation seems dangerous, you can always contact management or the Police for help.
