The Rietveld Academie disapproves of any form of (sexual) intimidation and violence. Everyone at the academy should be able to work and study in a good atmosphere. Safety is an essential condition for this.
The board of the Rietveld Academie considers undesirable behaviour a serious problem that requires our continuous attention. The board wishes to be accountable for a safe study environment where undesirable behaviour is prevented, and for an atmosphere in which negative experiences can be discussed and will be addressed. The Rietveld Academie strives for a constructive and respectful dialogue in a safe context.
We understand that action is needed. A substantial number of persons, processes and protocols are already in place. In the recent years a number of additional initiatives have been set in motion and further steps are now being taken.
Code of Conduct
To create socially safe working and learning environments, the Rietveld Academie is in the process of drafting a code of conduct applicable to all staff and students. This code is still under development. When we are a step further along, we will post a version of the code of conduct here on the website. It is a ‘living document’ and will remain so.
