We want our University to be a place of safety and respect
CSU has joined Respect. Now. Always., a sector-wide campaign to prevent sexual assault and sexual harassment.
We join all Australian universities to keep building our values of safety, respect and inclusion in our communities. We will support you and people you know who have been affected by sexual violence.
CSU has zero tolerance to sexual assault and sexual harassment. As part of a comprehensive plan to respond to these issues, we are rolling out training for students and staff about consensual and respectful attitudes, and what to do in an emergency. We want you to feel empowered and informed about how to act, respond and feel supported to report on sexual assault and sexual harassment at CSU.
We have also established a dedicated, centralised phone number if you need urgent assistance at CSU. Call 1800 961 991 for urgent help with an incident of sexual violence. You can talk to any staff member, who will be able to help you take the next steps. Staff are required to lodge disclosures of sexual assault or sexual harassment using the online incident form; this can be done anonymously if you wish.
Late last year, university students from across Australia were invited to complete a landmark survey about their experiences and the prevalence of sexual violence in the higher education sector. The results of this survey, released on 1 August, will help all universities continue to improve the way we respond to and support students affected by sexual assault and sexual harassment.
