Are you in need of advice and support? Contact Melanie Nussbaumer, Personal Integrity Coordinator.
The Personal Integrity Coordination Office is tasked with supporting and safeguarding this respectful work culture.
Personal support for those affected, bystanders and persons responsible for leadership
To ensure protection of personal integrity, the Personal Integrity Coordination Office functions as an easily accessible, confidential and personal point of contact, offering advice and support for university staff and students whose personal integrity has been violated or for bystanders watching violations.
Preventive measures are of great importance for the protection of personal integrity in a respectful working and studying environment. For this reason, we are optimizing the existing range of information and developing a target-group-specific training program. On March 23, the national university day against sexual harassment is held every year to repeatedly point out this important topic and to raise awareness in this regard. Here you can find the report on the last day of action. The Personal Integrity Coordination Office continually evaluates and optimizes the University of Basel’s regulatory, operational and communication processes with regard to their suitability in maintaining respect and protection for the personal integrity of all its members.
