All our professional and personal relationships should be respectful. Respectful relationships are built on trust, good communication and mutual respect. Within a culture of respectful relationships, there is no place for sexual assault, sexual harassment or violence of any kind.
The Respectful Relationships Unit (RRU) was established in 2019 as part of the University's ongoing work to build safe and respectful communities and prevent sexual assault and sexual harassment. The RRU is a team of specialist practitioners who work with staff and students across the university to help meet the goals outlined in the Sexual Violence Prevention Strategy. The team provides professional services - including education, community engagement, capacity building, consultation and planning facilitation - that support ANU communities to change culture and effectively address the drivers of sexual violence.
