FIE regards its campus, housing, and classroom facilities (physical or virtual) as safe spaces to live, study, meet, and work with students, faculty, and staff who are understanding, supportive, and trustworthy. FIE endeavors to provide appropriate housing for all of its students. Our hope is that everyone in the FIE community – students, faculty, staff, and visitors – knows they can come to anyone for help, advice or just to talk and they can expect consideration, support, and the appropriate signposting where necessary.  

Everyone at FIE has a right to their opinion; and we encourage brave, diverse, and inclusive conversations, however, if someone is stating myths or misinformation FIE faculty and staff will provide more accurate information in a respectful manner. Inappropriate and derogatory comments and/or actions, harassment, bullying, victimization, and discrimination are not tolerated and any such behavior will be addressed, investigated, and dealt with appropriately. Our approach is based on the Western Michigan State University “Safe on Campus” program. 

This policy applies at all FIE spaces (physical and virtual), including but not limited to the following:

  • Kensington Campus (Foundation House, Metrogate House, and in and around all FIE housing facilities)
  • FIE Dublin office
  • Non-FIE housing facilities in which FIE students reside, including Binary Hub (Dublin)
  • Dublin university partners
  • External academic spaces
  • Virtual FIE classrooms, meeting rooms, and activities
  • Internship offices and activities, including online internships
  • Co-curricular and extra-curricular activities, including online activities

Students, faculty staff and visitors who would like to discuss any safe spaces and/or diversity & inclusivity needs or concerns can do so by emailing our Diversity Leads on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .
