Dear Liverpool Hope University,

1. Does the University have a policy for staff regarding sexual harassment/misconduct between (a) staff and staff, (b) staff and students? If so, please provide this, preferably a link to it or electronically. Such a policy might concern definitions, how to report, processes, and so on.

2. What kind of training (e.g. online or in-person; voluntary or compulsory) is provided to staff regarding sexual harassment/misconduct? Approximately how many staff have undergone this training in the last year? [or last year that has available data]

3. In the last year [or last year that has available data], how many cases of alleged sexual harassment/misconduct by staff (staff-student or staff-staff) have been reported to the university?

Yours faithfully,

R. Brunk

Marc Jones, Liverpool Hope University

Yours sincerely,

Dear R Brunk
I passed your query to our data team, who clarified that the data is
inclusive of dual awards;  they can include the dual award names i.e.
Music and Technology, however, this results in the data being so granular
that 90% of it will have to be redacted as the numbers then appear low.
I have attached the information you requested in relation to PG students.
Where a number is five or below this has been replaced with an asterisk
(*).
Best wishes

Dear Marc Jones,

I believe there's been some confusion - I am asking about sexual harassment training, not music awards.

Yours sincerely,

someone else. I will chase up your request for clarification now and get
back to you as soon as I have the info.
