Griffith took part in the national respect. Now. Always campaign

Australian Universities launched a major new campaign aimed at preventing sexual assault and harassment. The
campaign - Respect. Now. Always. - highlighted the determination of Australia’s universities to ensure that our students and staff are safe from sexual assault and sexual harassment.

It is essential that universities are places of safety and respect. Over many years, our universities have developedpolicies and protocols to prevent sexual assault and sexual harassment and ensure services are in place to support students who disclose or report. We want safety and respect to be central to university culture.



A campaign that educated and empowered

The campaign raised awareness amongst university students and staff that sexual assault and sexual harassment are unacceptable and it provided clear pathways of support for those who needed it. It spoke directly to the university community, which aimed to educate and empower.

All Australian universities were asked by the Australian Human Rights Commission to conduct an independent survey of uni students to measure the nature and scale of the problem.
