Reporting Sexual Assualt and Sexual Harassment
CONSENT and SASH (Sexual Assault and Sexual Harassment)
Good relationships are all about respecting and trusting each other. At the heart of enjoyable, healthy and safe sexual experiences is a focus on consent. Always make sure that your partner gives their consent before engaging in sexual activity.
Consent is the free and voluntary agreement to willingly engage in sexual activity of any kind. You know you have consent if you get an enthusiastic ‘yes’ (verbal or non-verbal) from the other person that indicates they want to participate in the sexual activity. Remember that they have the right to change their mind at any time. If they ask to stop, or give signs that they are uncomfortable, do not keep going or try to persuade them to keep engaging in the sexual activity. Consent cannot be assumed where a person:
- is silent
- is not fighting back
- says ‘no’ or ‘maybe’
- is forced or coerced
- is threatened or manipulated by authority
What can I do? Ensure safety: If you believe there is an immediate risk to yourself or another person on campus, call security; or for off campus, call 000.

How do I help someone else?

Student Services can also provide advice for you to pass on to another person.
