All staff are protected from bullying and harassment under the University Dignity and Respect Policy.

Trinity College Dublin is committed to:

  • Ensuring that people with disabilities will be facilitated to give effective performance in the posts that they hold, and will not be disadvantaged by reason of having a disability.
  • Creating a supportive workplace environment which allows employees with disabilities to develop their full potential.
  • Increasing the proportion of staff with disabilities to a minimum of 3% of total staff in compliance with statutory requirements.
  • Actively encouraging applications from people with disabilities
  • Removing such barriers that prevent full access and participation in the life of the University for people with disabilities.
