University residences should be doing everything possible to stop sexual violence on campus

I AGREE

Compare Uni residences' training to prevent sexual assault

This October Fair Agenda contacted the 234 university residences across Australia with a survey asking what, if any, training they will provide to students and relevant staff in 2020. This table summarises the responses received by December 2019.

Here are the key findings from the survey about 2020 training so far:

  • 234 residences were contacted with the survey questions
  • 114 residences have answered the survey questions so far, of which: 
    • 114 residences have indicated that all their students will be trained in consent and preventing sexual violence
      • 45 have confirmed a sexual assault service will be involved in training all students (another 23 have confirmed they will involve a sexual assault service in some way in training at least some students). A further 37 residences have indicated they intend to involve a sexual assault service in their training for at least some students. 
      • 89 residences will train at least some students in how to be an "ethical bystander" (that is, to safely intervene if they think someone be at risk)
      • 92 residences will train at least some students in how to respond compassionately if a friend discloses sexual assault
    • 111 residences indicated they will train all staff responsible for student welfare in preventing sexual violence
      • 64 residences have confirmed they will involve a sexual assault service in training for all staff (a further 11 residences have confirmed they will involve a sexual assault service in training at least some staff). A further  34 residences have indicated they intend to involve a sexual assault service in their training for at least some staff
  • 120 residences are yet to provide a response to the survey

 

You can use the drop down menus below to compare the key responses provided by residences in each state or university.

Please note: Fair Agenda has sent multiple communications to every residence on this list. Some have explicitly declined the invitation to participate in the survey, others have not responded to our communications at all. If your residence hasn't provided a response to the questions, we encourage you to get in touch with them directly. You can find out more about that here.
