Everyone at RMIT deserves to feel safe, included and valued – and it all starts with respect.
There’s no place in our community for gender-based violence or the disrespect, outdated views and inequality that drives it.
Respect at Uni Week is a great opportunity to learn what RMIT is doing to prevent and respond to sexual harassment and sexual assault, and how you can contribute to making our uni safer for everyone.
Respect at Uni is a joint initiative of all Victorian universities. Each university has been organising local events during their own Respect at Uni Week, including some open to all Victorian students – and it’s RMIT’s turn from 27-31 March.
If you have experienced sexual harassment, sexual assault, or any other inappropriate behaviour, help is always available. Contact Safer Community to learn more.
Victorian universities are joining forces to promote the importance of respect, equality and inclusion on our campuses and online spaces. Our communities should be safe and free from violence. The National Student Safety Survey has revealed universities must continue to improve their response to and prevention of sexual harassment and sexual assault. We invite students and staff at all Victorian universities to participate in the upcoming Respect at Uni Week activities and to help create a safe and respectful community. Preventing gender-based violence starts with a culture of respect – now and always.
