Code of Conduct

The Warwick Mathematics Research Centre (MRC) strives to make all visitors comfortable and free to benefit from its activities. Participants at MRC events are respectfully required to abide by the MRC code of conduct and the University’s Dignity at Warwick Policy. Any visitors who do not accept our code of conduct will not be permitted to register for our events.

Participants in our events will keep all interactions civil and pleasant, and foster a respectful and welcoming atmosphere for all.

Examples of behaviour that will not be tolerated include;

  • offensive comments (including those related to gender, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race and religion) either in person or online or on social media;
  • inappropriate physical contact;
  • unwelcome sexual or other forms of attention;
  • deliberate intimidation or following;
  • sustained disruption of talks or other events.

This code of conduct applies at the event venue and also at other places and occasions including visitor accommodation, social interactions and excursions.

If a participant engages in unacceptable behaviour, the MRC will take action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender and if necessary, removing them from the event and restricting them from attending future events. If appropriate, the MRC will report offences to the offender’s home institution and/or the police.

If you are being harassed, are concerned that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns about unacceptable behaviour, please immediately contact the MRC Events Executive either in person in the MRC or via , if you feel this is appropriate in the first instance.

If you feel that you are in immediate danger when on campus, please contact the University’s Community Safety Team on 02476 522222.

The University’s Report and Support platform is a secure and confidential online platform to report incidents of sexual misconduct, bullying, harassment, discrimination or hate crime. Students, staff or visitors can use the tool to report an incident, whether it took place on campus, off-campus or online.

You have two reporting options, Speak to an Advisor or Report Anonymously. If you submit a report to Speak to an Advisor, a specially trained Liaison Officer will contact you within 2 University working days.
