UCL believes in changing the world for the better.  That has to start in our own community. For most people this is a great place to work or study. Yet where unacceptable behaviour does exist, it can have a real impact, and it can be difficult to know how to challenge it. So UCL is asking our community to come together and say Full Stop. 

There are a number of resources for each phase of the Full Stop campaign.

Launch materials
The Full Stop campaign was the first institution-wide campaign at UCL. To mark this important work and the launch of Report + Support, a series of resources were developed, including a toolkit with key messages for students and staff, and suggested ways that members of the UCL community could become involved as an individual, in their department, and included broader work that UCL was undertaking to improve culture.

The problem with blurred lines
Most students and staff can identify the extreme examples of bullying, harassment, xenophobia and sexual misconduct, however lower level or boundary blurring behaviour can be more difficult to identify and address. Some examples include unreasonable requests regarding working hours or workload – including volume of emails and unclear expectations or meeting students for supervision meetings at the pub, or in a private home. Full Stop hopes to help address this by helping our students and staff take action even when there are blurred lines.

Let's talk about race
To say Full Stop to racial harassment and xenophobia, UCL is launching the 'Let's talk about race' campaign for students and staff. The key materials are still under development, but these will be available for the start of the academic year.  

General key messages 

  • Micro inequalities is a theory that refers to ways in which people can be overlooked, singled out, ignored or discounted on the basis on an unchangeable characteristic, such as race or disability. Micro inequalities can have a harmful impact on people and the cumulative effect can stack up to a form of be bullying or harassment. 
  • Not sure if the behaviour is appropriate – ask yourself these three questions: 1. Is there an uneven power dynamic between yourself and someone else or others? 2.Is power being misused on either side in a way that is unfair or difficult to justify? ? 3. Is there another way to express the same sentiment or achieve the same goal without engaging in the behaviour? 
  • Still not sure if yours or your peers’ behaviour is acceptable? Ask yourself and colleagues these questions? Would you want your family member subject to that behaviour? Would you behave in this way in front of your partner or family? Would you behave in this way in front of their partner or family? Is the behaviour reciprocated? Are there any signs the behaviour is not wanted? 
  • While we all have different perceptions about what is acceptable or unacceptable, we need to be mindful that our expectations will differ to those around use – what is acceptable to me, might not be to someone else – and that is okay. It’s about thinking how we can agree a way of working or learning together that is respectful of both of our perceptions. 
  • It is never too late to disclose or report an incident. To find out more about UCL support or to report, please visit ‘Report + Support’. 
  • If you have experienced unacceptable behaviour at UCL and want to understand your options, contact an Advisor through ‘Report + Support’. 
  • Want to find out more about how you can help create a supportive and inclusive environment at UCL? Visit the ‘Get Informed’ page on ‘Report + Support’. 
  • When we witness poor behaviour and do nothing, we send a message that the behaviour is okay. Say Full Stop to unacceptable behaviour and become an active bystander today. 
  • Unacceptable behaviour can have a profound impact on individuals, departments and the institution. We must all call out and challenge unacceptable behaviour where possible. 
  • Do you know the four D’s of being an active bystander? Direct, distract, delegate and delay. Find out more about how you can be an active bystander on Report + Support. #FullstopatUCL
