Sexual Violence & Misconduct: Prevention and Response

Task Force 2015 - 2016

Sexual Violence and Misconduct is defined as any unwanted conduct of a sexual nature. It can include, but is not limited to, rape, sexual assault, harassment, and incidents of ‘revenge porn’. The Sexual Violence Task Force was set up in 2015 to promote and embed a culture in which any incidents of sexual violence and misconduct are not tolerated, and a safe work and study environment is preserved. It made a set of recommendations, which the University's Council later approved. The Sexual Violence Task Force has now disbanded and their recommendations are being implemented by the Sexual Violence & Misconduct Operations Group.
