Providing a safe learning environment for your students and staff is essential to ensuring sound learning outcomes for students. Unfortunately, in recent times this is something which most educational institutions seem to struggle with. Australian higher education providers have seen a growing culture of violence of acceptance demonstrating the need for an increased security presence on campus.
Whilst harassment is an issue that is addressed in many university policies, the focus is typically on the roles staff play. Despite many campus attempts to develop comprehensive anti‐harassment policies, there are still issues of harassment that are not adequately addressed at many universities. A survey carried out by the National Union of Students found that students felt relatively safe during the day, but were unable to say the same during the evening. 76% of women surveyed said they felt unsafe on campus during the evening. Further, the study showed:
- 86% of those surveyed had experienced someone making sexual comments or noises
- 25% have had unwanted physical contact of a sexual nature.
- 35% have had unwanted contact in the way of groping, touching , etc.
- 25% of respondents experienced this type of behaviour on more than one occasion.
