The International Student Office @ OSIPP | Osaka University | Open weekdays 10:30-17:00
OSIPP and Osaka University strives to create an environment supportive of education, research, and work. The only way this goal can be achieved is for all members of the university community to work together in eliminating all types of harassment.
Sexual harassment refers to any unwanted sexual comments or behavior by a faculty, staff, or student directed at another faculty, staff, student, or other person – unwanted sexual comments or behavior that takes advantage of the relationship(s) between the offender and victim.
Academic harassment refers to any inappropriate and unfair comments or behavior by faculty, staff, or student about another individual’s research, education, or study -- comments and behavior unfairly and inappropriately taking advantage of the offender’s official position, authority, or relationship(s) with the victim
Primarily a labor issue, power harassment refers to any inappropriate and unfair comments or behavior by faculty or staff about the work of another faculty or staff member -- comments or behavior unfairly and inappropriately taking advantage of the offender’s official position, authority, or relationship(s) with the victim.
