Title The question students should ask: how is my university tackling sexual violence? Degree of recognition International Media name/outlet theguardian.com Media type Web Country/Territory United Kingdom Date 7/05/19 Description Students can help universities shape their processes for preventing and reporting sexual violence on campus.
Student unions have played a vital role as universities tackle the problem of sexual violence on campus. This matters because the experience of sexual violence can take a serious toll on both one’s physical and mental health. The more students hold their universities to account for how they deal with the problem, the greater the influence they can have in making campuses safer. Here are four questions that students can ask their universities.
Do they publish the number of reported incidents?
Does the university fund Rape Crisis services?
Are there consent talks for new students?
Are students actively encouraged to report sexual violence to the institution?
