Respect. Now. Always. 2018

1 August, 2018

This week marks the one-year anniversary of the release of the landmark Australian Human Rights Commission student survey on sexual assault and sexual harassment in Australian universities, and the Respect. Now. Always. report by Universities Australia.

Emmanuel College within The University of Queensland has an unwavering commitment to ensuring student safety, fostering a culture of respect among all members of the College community.

The College supports today’s renewed commitment by The University of Queensland’s President and Vice-Chancellor Professor Peter Høj, to work with students and stakeholders to make continued progress.

In particular, Professor Høj has committed the University to implementing the recommendations of the report and building on the prevention and support measures that the University has put into place over the past year.

Read the Vice Chancellor’s statements here.

Emmanuel College does not tolerate sexual assault and harassment. In addition to the support services and education programs available to all our students, we are committed to improving measures for preventing and responding to sexual violence informed by best-practice guidelines, student feedback and open communication.

For further information on how Emmanuel College is assisting students in developing respectful relationships and promoting positive attitudes and behaviours, please see the Respectful Relationships section of our website.
