The Independent: Universities still need to do more to tackle sexual misconduct against students

This piece from The Independent looks into how universities are doing with the recommendations from the Office for Students from last year. It is good to hear there have been some improvements to the structures that universities have in place, it seems there is still a long way to go.

Universities could face losing their status, including public funding, if they fail to improve how they tackle harassment and sexual misconduct, under proposals from the higher education watchdog for England.

Student safety is something that ProtectED is passionate about. Harassment and Sexual assault, is one of the areas we cover in our Code of Practice for universities. If you haven't taken a look at our Instrument on Student Harassment and Sexual Assault, it is a great way to make sure your university is doing everything it can for its students.
