With these values in mind, it’s important to be clear that there are behaviours that we do not and will not accept in the department, and we have clear pathways in place both departmentally and across Imperial for reporting and support.

We do not accept microaggressions, bullying or harassment of any kind and are committed to taking the necessary action to eliminate all forms of discrimination – especially direct and indirect forms of harassment, bullying and victimisation, and those based on gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or any other of the protected characteristics outlined in the Equality Act 2010. Read our statement on racism to find out how the department deals with racist abuse, and where you can get support.

We expect all of our staff, students and visiting researchers to adhere to this with no exceptions.
