What is sexual assault and sexual harassment?

Consent

Consent matters speech bubble

Consent Matters: Boundaries, Respect and Positive Intervention is a free online course that will help you understand sexual consent and how to recognise situations when consent can and can't be given, whatever your gender or sexuality. The course can support you in thinking about your own boundaries and how to talk about them. It also demonstrates different ways you could step in if you see or hear something you're uncomfortable with. This interactive course uses quizzes and student scenarios alongside research and resources.

Staff and students are encouraged to complete Consent Matters now available on Learning at Griffith.

Respect. Now. Always.
