Respect. Now. Always – Student Safety and Prevention of Sexual Assault & Sexual Harassment
At Elite Education Institute we take the safety of all our students seriously. In February 2016, Australia’s universities launched a ground-breaking initiative to prevent and address sexual assault and harassment across the sector.
Respect. Now. Always. highlights the determination of Australia’s universities to ensure that our educational institutes are places of safety and respect, and as a private provider Elite wants to ensure to provide an environment that is safe for everyone. The 10-point Action Plan builds on work done by individual universities in Australia over many years to develop policies, reporting procedures and support services.
The campaign aims to:
- raise awareness of sexual assault and sexual harassment and lift the visibility of support services for students;
- obtain data to guide further improvement in university policies and services;and
- assist universities in sharing global best practice resources across the sector.
