Sexual assault and harassment

Sexual assault is any sexual acts without consent. It can include being forced, coerced, or tricked into an act or any unwanted behaviours.

Harassment is when a person is treated less favourably on the basis of certain personal characteristics e.g.: gender identity, age, race. Sexual assault and harassment can happen to all people from all back grounds, aged and genders. It is NOT the victim’s fault.

Disclosure is telling someone about an incident of sexual assault or sexual harassment and/or seeking advice or support without initiating a formal report with the university or externally with another agency.

Reporting an incident of sexual assault or sexual harassment is a formal process, requiring a response from the university, in accordance with relevant policies and procedures. this can mean taking the appropriate action in conjunction with the police, professional bodies or other government agencies.
