The Hunting Ground Australia Action Toolkit
The Hunting Ground Australia Project has produced an Action Toolkit to empower key audiences, including students, parents, alumni, faculty, advisors and administrators, to take action to combat sexual violence in Australian universities. Based on US resources, the Toolkit includes a Student Campus Environmental Scan —for students to consider how effective their university is in responding to, and helping end, sexual violence— as well as resources and contacts for students and others to seek out further information.
Uni Residences: Train Students and Staff to Prevent Sexual Assault
The training of students and staff in consent and sexual violence prevention is critical. University residences are in a key position to lead this change. Each year they run social programs for new students during ‘O-week’, and are responsible for creating a home-away-from-home for thousands of students at university.
In September 2016, Fair Agenda contacted the 214 university residences across Australia with a survey asking what, if any, training they will be providing to students and relevant staff in this area in 2017.
We need a groundswell of community voices calling on campus residences to take action to train all our young people attending university on-campus in 2017.
Can you add your voice to Fair Agenda’s petition to make sure residences know the whole community wants them to take this issue seriously?
