UA is the peak body for Australia’s 39 comprehensive universities. There is no higher priority for universities than the safety and wellbeing of their students and staff. With a community of more than 1.4 million students and 130,000 staff, universities play a vital leadership role in preventing and responding to violence and harassment, and combatting online abuse wherever it exists.
UA and our member universities work closely with the specialist family, domestic and sexual violence prevention and response sector, survivor and victim advocates and governments to address violence against women. The work we undertake is informed by experts and reflects best practice.
