Abstract

This document summarises the essential elements of an effective strategic approach to preventing, and responding to, sexual and domestic violence against women and related forms of violence and abuse in university settings. In order to respond to their institutional responsibilities, universities should address: prevention; policy; monitoring and reporting; providing and signposting specialist response and support pathways; and fostering culture change – which is key to preventing violence against women. In addition to this institutional response, it is important for student unions and other student–led organisations to work in conjunction with universities particularly in regard to shaping culture change.
