Information, Advice and Support
In 2016, Goldsmiths began to address the complicit cultures within Higher Education around sexual violence and launched a large-scale effort to address these cultures on our own campus. It became important to acknowledge that major issues around sexual violence, sexual harassment, and sexual misconduct are pervasive throughout society and that educational institutions like our own are not immune to these issues.
Over the course of the year, Goldsmiths Students' Union worked with the College to develop a formal policy that recognises the institution’s duty of care towards all of its members to prevent and respond to these issues.
In this video, Amelia from Goldsmiths Students' Union teams up with Silke from the Not The Only One Project to read out some of the important terms and basic definitions which are in the new policy and will be used in these videos.
