Stories about bullying and its impacts on individuals and society are commonplace in the media today. If you are concerned about bullying in schools or in the workplace join us in supporting Pink Shirt Day on Feb. 25, 2015. Learn about how you can help to stop bullying in communities across the province at http://www.pinkshirtday.ca.
At UBC, we strive to provide a safe, respectful and productive work environment for our faculty, staff and student employees. The UBC Respectful Environment Statement outlines our principles as we work to create a respectful environment for all.
The best possible environment for working, learning and living is one in which respect, civility, diversity, opportunity and inclusion are valued. Everyone at the University of British Columbia is expected to conduct themselves in a manner that upholds these principles in all communications and interactions with fellow UBC community members and the public in all University-related settings.
One of UBC’s initiatives to support a respectful environment is the Bullying and Harassment Prevention website at http://bullyingandharassment.ubc.ca. The website has information for UBC faculty, staff and student employees to support a work environment that has no place for bullying and harassment. Visit http://bullyingandharassment.ubc.ca to learn more.
The UBC community works together every day to build a respectful environment for all. On Feb. 25, wear pink to show your support for an end to bullying and harassment.
