Content warning: Sexual Assault and Harassment

In 2017 the Australian Human Rights Commission released the Change the Course Report- a report into instances of sexual assault and harassment at universities. The report showed that 50% of students at Melbourne University had experienced sexual harassment in 2016. Safety on campus is the most important issue at our university. Everyone has a right to feel safe while completing their education. Thursday August 1 marks the 2 year anniversary of the Change the Course report. We are never going to stop fighting for a safer campus. Join us as we discuss how to continue the safety on campus campaign.
