Flinders University is committed to providing a safe, respectful, and inclusive learning environment and has zero tolerance for sexual assault and sexual harassment.
Flinders is part of a national campaign across Australian Universities which aims to prevent gender-based violence and support those who experience it.
We are very keen to hear from students about how we can raise awareness and provide information to students on getting support and reporting sexual harassment and sexual assault at Flinders.
If you would like to share your views on this, we would like to invite you to a Student Focus Group on campus on Wednesday 5th May.
Sessions will be held at 10am and 1pm at Oasis and run for 2 hours duration.
We will also offer an online Focus Group the following Wednesday 12th May from 10-11.30am. If you would like to do this option, please advise when you register your interest at the email address below.
Morning or afternoon tea will be provided at the in person Focus Groups, and you will receive a $20 voucher to acknowledge your time and participation.
Commitment required from you:
- visit and explore the Safety On Campus webpage before attending the Focus Group
- provide feedback at the Focus Group on:
- Safety On Campus webpage
- awareness campaigns currently run at Flinders
- visibility and accessibility of support and reporting options at Flinders
- culture at Flinders
- Be A Better Human student-run campaign – a FUSA representative will facilitate this part of the session
There is no expectation of personal disclosure at these sessions. It is a general forum to explore what messages and information you would like to see on campus and online and to explore how Flinders could best share this information with our students. Each session will be capped at 12 people to enable effective group discussion.
We understand the content of these sessions may be distressing, and Counselling will be made available to those who participate.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to register your interest, and advise whether you would like to attend the morning, afternoon or online session.
