Respect. Now. Always.

The University has no tolerance for sexual misconduct, harassment, assault and gender-based violence and promotes respect for all on our campus. We want to build a community where every student and staff member feels safe and are dedicated to preventing sexual violence. UC's Sexual Violence Information and Resources page has more information about UC's Sexual Misconduct Policy and Procedure as well as the UA's Charter on Sexual Harm.

CHECK CONSENT, EVERYTIME.  Make No Doubt. Have a look at these helpful consent resources from NSW Government, that explain consent, how to check consent, consent and the law, as well as other support services.

Do you have it? Do the people that you are intimate with…

  • Ask what you want when it comes to sex & respect your boundaries? Most sexual assaults are committed by someone the person knows. No one should pressure you into doing anything sexual, or harm you physically.
  • Support your independence and interests? No one should keep you from your social life, work, or educational goals.

Sex should feel good for all partners and healthy relationships are ones that are supportive.
