Quick Exit

We are all responsible for ensuring our campuses are safe and respectful environments.

We all have a role to play in the prevention of sexual misconduct. Ensure you have the knowledge and skills to make consensual relationships, intervene when witnessing sexual misconduct and help a survivor.

Understanding sexual misconduct and family and domestic violence is also important to know so that you know how to look out for related behaviours and actions that you, or someone you know, may be experiencing.

Consent is a vital part of all intimate relationships and sexual interactions. Ensure the safety of you and your partner/s by making sure everyone involved is informed and comfortable. When it comes to sex, consent is not an option. Find out more about why consent matters and how to access support.

Ethical Bystanders

An ethical bystander is someone who witnesses an event that concerns them, chooses to do something, and considers the safest way to intervene. Ethical bystanders play an essential role in keeping our campus safe and help build a culture of respect and zero-tolerance to violence. Find out how to be an ethical bystander.

Safety and respect online
