Confidential advisor

Being a student or employee you can experience undesirable behavior, like (sexual) harassment, aggression, bullying or unequal treatment. Usually people try to solve this by their selves, but sometimes it is wise to call in the confidential advisor. She works totally independent, she may give you advise and she also can decide to intervene. Don’t hesitate to contact her.
Marloes Rikhof is confidential advisor for employees and available by mail ([email protected]) or by phone (043-3882513). Wendy Geijen is confidential advisor for students and available by mail ([email protected]) or by phone (06--28035033).
