Tamko has Harassment Contacts who provide help and guidance for students who have experienced disturbance in any form. Harassment Contacts do not document any of the cases and they have full confidentiality. Bullying, inappropriate or discriminating behavior are taken seriously in TAMK and Harassment Contact Persons are supporting students in these kinds of situations. 

Harassment Contacts are regular students of TAMK and new contact persons will be trained for the part. Tamko´s Board member and employee are supporting Harassment Contact Persons. We encourage students from diverse backgrounds to enroll for this role.

If you are interested, send your application on this application form: https://lomake.tamk.fi/lomakkeet/34538/lomake.html
