ITB Campus Code

Introduction

At the Institute of Technology Blanchardstown, we believe that each and every person has the right to a positive campus experience. Appropriate behaviour is expected of each individual at all times.

The Campus Code is a collaboration of efforts between staff and students outlining how we can act in a positive manner towards each other.

There is an emphasis on co-operation between staff, students and all other users of the facilities at ITB. We take pride in promoting a co-operative, respectful and supportive environment that embraces diversity and excludes bullying, discrimination, prejudice or intimidation.

Please take the time to read the Campus Code and contribute to a positive experience at ITB.

Closing Note

 

Thank you for taking the time to read the Campus Code. The Campus Code provides ways for individuals to reflect on and be responsible for their own behaviour. In the event that you experience inappropriate or unacceptable behaviour on campus, help is available through Human Resources and Student Services.

Together, we can make the Campus Code a living concept and accessible to all.
