Speak up – guidelines for reporting of censurable conditions at NHH

If you as a student or employee discover breeches of laws or ethical standards, for example bullying, harassment, discrimination, dishonesty, misappropriation of funds and more, it is important that you speak up.

Reporting for students

It is important that you report serious, blameworthy conditions that you experience or observe at NHH. Speak up about your learning environment!

You can report it to stud.reporting@nhh.no (goes to Deputy Rector for academic affairs Linda Nøstbakken and Senior Advisor Jorun Gunnerud).

Students can also report to Deputy Rector for Academic Affairs Linda Nøstbakken. 

Reporting for employees

If you discover harmful, unethical or illegal conditions at NHH it is important that you report it.

You can report it to reporting@nhh.no ( goes to acting HR-director Elise Kongsvik, Vice Rector Gunnar E. Christensen and Senior Executive Officer Marianne Stople at HR).

As an employee you can also report it to your immediate leader, safety representative or employee representative.

You can also report it to

  • Acting HR-director Elise Kongsvik
  • Vice Rector Gunnar E. Christensen
  • Rector Øystein Thøgersen

What happens if you report

Your report should include:

  • your name
  • description of what you have experienced/observed
  • place, date and time of the incident
  • other witnesses

All received reports will be taken seriously. You will get confirmation that your report has been received and the  case will be handled as soon as possible. We will handle the report confidentially, which means that only the people needed to follow up your case will know your name and the details in your report.

The person who is accused has the right to know about the accusations, get an understanding of the substance of the case, and present their side. This means that in most cases the accused person will know the identity of the accuser.

You will be informed about the outcome of the case. If the conclusion is that censurable conditions have occurred, corrective measures will taken to correct the situation.  

Anonymous reporting

If you want to report anonymously you can report by letter or phone to

  • Deputy Rector Academic Affairs Linda Nøstbakken (for students)
  • Vice Rector Gunnar E. Christensen (for employees)

Anonymous reports are usually more difficult to handle. Nonetheless, we will do our best to correct the reported matter.
