The corona crisis is a time of social isolation and stress, also at the UT. What is it like to keep track of people in vulnerable situations? ‘So far the work goes on as normal,’ says UT ombudsman Han Warmelink. ‘There haven’t been cases related specifically to corona, but those might appear in the coming months.’
Niemand is blij met intimidatie en wangedrag binnen de universiteiten, dus ook minister Van Engelshoven niet. Maar in een landelijke klachtencommissie ziet ze weinig. Ze mikt liever op een cultuurverandering.
As a response to the #MeToo movement and related issues, the UT aims to get an independent ombudsperson. In January, the UT will also launch a new website on integrity and an ‘active bystander training’. These plans were presented at today’s meeting organized by the FFNT (Female Faculty Network Twente).
