As many of you will know by now, Universities Australia's National Student Safety Survey for 2022 was released today on 23 March, 2022, indicating the terrible prevalence of sexual harassment and sexual assault with our universities. The results saw the ANU with one of the worst performances regarding student experiences of SASH:

- 26% (twice the national average) of ANU students reported being harassed - indicating over five thousand people

- 12.3%(three times the national average) of ANU students reported they were survivors of sexual assault: indicating over two and a half thousand people

On Monday, 21 March 2022, the university released a plan to increase students' safety, after years of advocacy. We still need more action to make our community safe. PARSA, ANUSA, the Women's Department and the Interhall Council have written united demands to the university. Please read out full letter and demands here

In response to the NSSS results, ANUSA, the ANU Women’s Department, PARSA, and the IHC are calling for a week of action starting 28 March (Week 6). There will be several events organised to demonstrate student disappointment and anger towards the ANU’s mishandling of sexual assault on campus. Please consider joining the events to stand in solidarity with our students and survivors.
