At the end of 2021 an important national survey on student safety was conducted across Australia by Universities Australia and the Social Research Centre. The results were released on 23 March 2022.
The National Student Safety Survey measured the prevalence of sexual assault and sexual harassment among university students, perceptions of safety, and views towards student campus life.
893 students from Victoria University joined over 40,000 others from universities across Australia to participate in this voluntary survey.
Victoria University’s work to address and respond to sexual violence is shaped by the student voice, experiences and needs. We welcome the knowledge and guidance the survey report has given us. It has highlighted areas we have to improve, and we will.
