Kyushu University Initiative

Harassment Prevention and Resolution Overview

Kyushu University aims to create a healthy and harassment-free campus and working environment. It has implemented strict measures for handling harassment and formulated preventive policies.

Scope of Harassment Prevention and Resolution

The university's harassment prevention and resolution policies apply to all members of the university, including students, faculty and staff, and directors, whether full- or part-time.

Harassment Prevention and Resolution System

For appropriate prevention and resolution of matters related to harassment, our university has established harassment prevention regulations, set up a university-wide system, and put in place an organization, the Harassment Committee, which works for harassment prevention and resolution.
The Harassment Committee receives the grievance, and if it is judged necessary, handles the grievance on a case-by-case basis by setting up an Investigation Subcommittee.

Counseling System

Kyushu University has established the Office for Harassment Prevention and Counseling on the Ito Campus to provide harassment counseling and respond to grievances. Specialized counselors handle consultations. In addition, on-site counseling is available at the University Hospital Campus. You can also consult with harassment counselors at each of the campuses.

Privacy Protection

When handling cases relating to harassment, counselors at the Office for Harassment Prevention and Counseling, harassment counselors at regional harassment counseling desks, and members of the Harassment Committee will respect the human rights of the concerned parties, including their rights to reputation and privacy, and will never leak confidential information obtained in the execution of their duties.
We strictly protect your privacy, so you can consult with us with peace of mind.

Measures Against Harassment Behaviors

If harassment behavior is reported, and if improvements are necessary in labor, education, training or the research environment in order to solve problems and prevent recurrence, the university will take the necessary measures.

Prohibition of Detrimental Treatment

Members of the university, including the opposite party in the complaint consultation or grievance (hereinafter referred to as “complaint consultation, etc.”) shall not give detrimental treatment (such as abuse, discrimination, or acts of retaliation [including behavior that suggests retaliation]) against persons who have filed the complaint consultation, etc., or against students, faculty and staff, etc., who have taken appropriate measures against harassment, such as cooperating in the fact-finding for such complaint consultation.
Moreover, the party that receives the notification and their department head, etc., are prohibited from seeking to identify the petitioner. Furthermore, no member of this university shall engage in any retaliatory or abusive behavior against the petitioner, counselors at the Office for Harassment Prevention and Counseling, harassment counselors at the campuses, or the Harassment Committee, etc.
In the event of possible violations of the above rules, the University President will investigate the matter and perform necessary corrective actions.
