We have joined forces with a number of Victorian-based universities to promote the importance of respect, equality and inclusion in our campuses, online spaces and communities.
Our communities should be safe and free from violence. The National Student Safety Survey has revealed universities must continue to improve their response to and prevention of sexual harassment and sexual assault.
From Monday 13 to Friday 17 March, we invite students and staff to participate in the upcoming Respect at Uni Week activities and help create safe and respectful communities. Preventing gender-based violence starts with a culture of respect – now and always.
At Torrens University Australia, and along with our peers in the higher education sector, we strongly believe our communities should be safe and free from any kind of violence. This campaign is a perfect example of how universities are coming together and collaborating to ensure the safety of all students, and the absolute non-negotiable that all universities need to be respectful spaces that keep our diverse community safe, and each student flourishing in their studies.

During Respect at Uni Week, we invite you to join us for three half-hour Learning at Lunch sessions.
This week, each campus will host a morning tea for staff and students to come together and gather in respect for the week.
