Our shared commitment to keeping each other safe


At DMU, our staff and students have a shared responsibility for ensuring that our campus is safe for us to enjoy.

We are all committed to working together, exercising personal responsibility and positively co-operating to make sure our environment is as safe as it can be, and an inclusive and successful community. To do this we will:

  • Respect each other and take reasonable care - for ourselves and for those who use our campus who may be affected by our acts or omissions
  • Keep each other safe by abiding by any current COVID-19 guidelines and regulations, including, for example, wearing face coverings when expected and able to do so
  • Respect our differences including acknowledging that wearing face masks is not possible for all
  • Act in a way that enriches our own educational experiences and that of others
  • Feel empowered to resist peer pressure and reject behaviours that are not in keeping with our values or relevant COVID-19 guidelines, but only when it is safe to do so  
  • Commit to a considerate way of working that enables shared use of space in accordance with university and other relevant health and safety requirements
  • Follow our own codes of conduct (staff and student), including observing health and safety policies
