Students and staff at all campuses of Galway-Mayo Institute of Technology can now use a new anonymous tool to report incidents of bullying, harassment, discrimination, hate crime, assault, stalking or rape.

The online tool called "Speak Out" was circulated to all GMIT staff and students via email earlier this month, following the national launch by Minister Simon Harris.

The online and anonymous reporting platform will help students and staff members to speak out in a safe and secure place, where individuals can report one incident or a series of related incidents at a time.

The data collected will be used to inform policy and targeted educational initiatives, and provide users with support services relevant to their experience.
