ITU launches “Here to Help” campaign
The new campaign Here to Help is intended to promote ITU’s values of inclusivity and mutual respect. Students are encouraged to reach out to Study and Career Guidance if they have experienced harassment or discrimination or if they have experienced behaviour that has made them feel unsafe or uncomfortable.

“We are all responsible for creating and maintaining a work and study environment that is open and inclusive to everyone. It goes without saying that no one should behave in a way that offends, intimidates, or is humiliating to others. We want students to know they can always approach Study and Career Guidance if they have experienced anything upsetting or uncomfortable,” says Head of SAP, Lene Rehder.
Part of the campaign is a new online guide to reporting cases of harassment, discrimination, and other types of unacceptable behaviour. The new site details the process of reporting incidents in an easy step-by-step way that lays out the process and possible outcomes. However, it is important to note that procedures are flexible according to the needs of the individual student:
“We want students to know that they can report unacceptable behaviour which we handle very seriously, but we also encourage students to come to us, if they just need to talk about an incident or an uncomfortable experience. We are there for students regardless of what they have experienced,” says Lene Rehder.
