The ground-breaking Respect. Now. Always. national university student survey on sexual assault and sexual harassment is a key part of an initiative by Australian universities to prevent and address these issues. Universities Australia has asked the Australian Human Rights Commission to conduct the survey, and is working closely with the Commission to implement it currently.
There is a clear priority on reducing violence on campus. It is essential for universities to provide key safety and wellbeing services for students. A failure to do so risks not only an increase in attrition, but student success and even student lives.
This conference will provide key strategies to address violence and sexual assault, mental health and wellbeing issues and how universities can work collaboratively to provide better support.
Time: 8:30 am to 4:30 pm
