Respect. Now. Always.

Ending sexual assault and sexual harassment at university.

Sexual assault and sexual harassment are never OK.
Western has zero tolerance for sexual offences in our university community.
  • Use the Support button to see your options if you have been sexually assaulted or sexually harassed.
  • Use the Report button if you want to report sexual assault or sexual harassment.

Respect.Now.Always.(opens in a new window) is a national campaign to ensure our Universities are places of safety and respect. We are driven by recommendations based on the Australian Human Rights Commission's 2017 survey into sexual offences at Australian universities, Change the Course (opens in a new window).

At Western, Respect.Now.Always. works to:

  • raise awareness of quality support and reporting options
  • address the drivers of sexual offences
  • model and celebrate positive and respectful behaviours
  • deliver relevant and engaging evidence-informed training
  • partner with like-minded organisations inside Western and in the community
