TU Dublin is now establishing an institutional Working Group on Ending Sexual Violence and Harassment. To that end, expressions of interest are invited from members of the University community.
In April 2019, the Department of Education and Skills, under the direction of Minister Mary Mitchell O’Connor published a framework document entitled Safe, Respectful, Supportive and Positive - Ending Sexual Violence and Harassment in Irish Higher Education Institutions. The document offers suggestions and guidelines for HEIs in ‘developing a comprehensive, year-round proactive response, with the aim of preventing sexual violence, promoting positive, active consent, and establishing a campus culture that promotes a healthy and informed understanding of consent and relationships in our higher education system’. The document calls on each HEI to establish a Working Group to oversee the implementation of this agenda.
Completed forms should be sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, 30 October 2020 with Action Plan on Sexual Violence as the subject text.
