> back to University sexual assault and sexual harassment project

The Australian Human Rights Commission has conducted an audit of Australian Universities, to coincide with the one year anniversary of the landmark Change the course report into sexual assault and sexual harassment at Australian universities.

The Change the course report found one in five (21%) students reported experiencing sexual harassment in a university setting in 2016 and 1.6% of students reported experiencing sexual assault in a university setting on at least one occasion in 2015 or 2016.

In July 2018 the Sex Discrimination Commissioner Kate Jenkins wrote to all 39 Vice Chancellors to request information about what action their university had taken in response to the Change the course report.
