Dignity Respect Support Colleagues


Who are the Dignity and Respect Support Colleagues?

The panel of Dignity and Respect Support Colleagues are fully trained employees appointed on a voluntary basis by the President. This panel is available to UCD employees.

Role of the Support Colleagues

The Support Colleague acts as a listening ear and can provide:

  • non-directive and non-judgemental support
  • information to employees experiencing difficulties of a bullying, harassment and/or sexual misconduct nature on a strictly confidential basis
  • information on the range of informal options and supports available
  • an explanation of the formal procedures

Dignity and Respect Support Colleagues do not advocate on behalf of any employee or student or get involved in any formal complaint.
