Durham University has signed up to a UK Government pledge promising not to use Non-Disclosure Agreements to silence victims of sexual misconduct, bullying and harassment.
A Durham University spokesperson said:
“We will not tolerate sexual harassment, abuse or misconduct, or other forms of harassment and bullying within our community.
“Where this occurs, we will always ensure victim-survivors get the support they need to report allegations, rebuild their lives, and stay safe.
“We would not use Non-Disclosure Agreements to silence victim-survivors of sexual harassment, abuse or misconduct, or other forms of harassment and bullying.”
