Symposium: Tackling Rape, Sexual Assault and Harassment at Universities and Colleges – 11 January 2017

5th April 2017

A survey conducted by the National Union of Students (NUS) in September 2014 revealed that from a total of 2,156 respondents, 37% of women and 12% of men had faced unwelcome sexual advances. Worryingly, according to the survey, 60% of respondents said they were unaware of any codes of conduct implemented by their university or students’ union that tackle sexual comments, unwelcomed sexual advances and verbal harassment.
