Harassment Complaints

To seek harassment counseling on conflicts between student and its supervisor, you can reach the consultation service by letter, email, facsimile and telephone, or simply visit the counseling staff. The counseling staff will strictly preserve the privacy of the consultor.
Persons who are involved in harassment consultations will not be treated unfairly or unreasonably because of using the consultation service.

As principle, the counseling staff will not contact the person(s) who have received an indication that they are perpetrating harassment, nor arrange the deliberations between the people concerned.

In case the counseling staff deems it appropriate, the counseling staff will make contact with the people concerned for the remedial actions according to the consulter’s request.
