A recent news article analysed reporting systems for sexual harassment and assault in New Zealand universities. The article pointed out it took six clicks to find information on UC’s website. UC aims for continuous improvement and worked quickly to make the relevant information easier to find.
No level of assault is acceptable. At UC we are very active in establishing an environment and behavioural expectations that provide a safe and healthy campus for all students.
In addition to having both formal and anonymous reporting systems, UC has several support teams to provide help to students if they have faced harassment on campus. We will continue to promote reporting options and the range of student support available at UC via a variety of channels.
UC takes very seriously the safety, security and education of our students with the aim of creating a campus community where students feel safe and where they belong.
