Last University Council, we handed in a letter to the Executive Board with the request for social safety training sessions for students. In terms of social safety, research conducted by ResearchNed on behalf of the ISO showed that twenty percent of the students surveyed reported having experienced incidents such as bullying, discrimination, blackmailing, and sexually transgressive behavior. In our letter, we asked the Executive Board to investigate the possibility of implementing similar training sessions at Tilburg University.
We hope social safety training sessions will be implemented at Tilburg University to ensure a safer university for ALL students!
We received a response from the Executive Board that the University is already working on this. You can read the full response here.
