What universities can do now
The release of the Australian Human Rights Commission’s report on sexual assault and harassment in university communities is coming soon. Here’s what your university should be doing now to prepare.
Heightened media and public discussion around sexual assault can be re-traumatising for survivors in the community. EROC Australia has developed five action points that should be implemented now to ensure that university communities are equipped to respond to the impact that this report may have on students survivors and student representatives.
These recommendations have been sent to Vice Chancellors and staff responsible for sexual assault policy at all 39 universities in Australia. We encourage students and advocates to get in touch with their universities, and demand that these recommendations are implemented now.
