DCU respects the human rights and dignity of all members of the DCU Community. An inclusive university environment enhances the living, learning, and working experience for all members of the University community. We aim to develop an equal, diverse, and inclusive community that is resilient, accomplished, and adaptable and that creates a positive impact on our staff, students, and society.

The DCU University culture will reflect our commitment to equality, educational opportunity, social justice, ethical behaviour, human rights, and academic freedom. We will achieve this by:

  • Fair and equal representation for all, allowing everyone in our community to contribute and reach their full potential.
  • Fostering and maintaining a safe environment of dignity, respect, and inclusion for employees, students, and members of the communities we serve
  • Ensuring fair and inclusive access to our facilities, programmes, resources, and services, and working to make all our policies and practices inclusive and equitable.
  • Encouraging respectful and dignified behaviour amongst students, staff, and the wider DCU Community.

The following policies and procedures are available for a student, staff member, or third party to make a disclosure, report, or complaint regarding a DCU student.
