If you have a complaint or if you experience problems at work, we hope you can find a solution in consultation with your supervisor or one of the confidential counsellors. If this is not the case or if there are other reasons preventing you from seeking help, you can also contact one of the committees below directly:
Committee on Academic Integrity
What should you do if you suspect an employee of violating academic integrity? In any case, contact the Committee on Academic Integrity.
Complaints Committee for Unacceptable Behaviour
Collegiality, mutual respect and attention for others form the basis for a healthy work environment. People may nevertheless fall victim to unacceptable behaviour. If this is the case, you can always contact the Complaints Committee for Unacceptable Behaviour.
