Harmful Sexual Behaviours Draft Policy Feedback

The DVC Students and Alumni and the DVC People and Culture welcomes feedback on a draft University policy addressing harmful sexual behaviours.

Massey University is undertaking work to support the development of a new policy concerning harmful sexual behaviours as part of our ongoing efforts to ensure the university environment is safe and welcoming for students, staff and visitors.  The policy outlines a set of principles which will govern and guide staff and students on matters relating to harmful sexual behaviour. This policy intends to:

  • Express the University’s commitment to creating and maintaining a safe environment for all community members. 
  • Outline expectations of University staff who receive reports of harmful sexual behaviour.
  • Ensure that disclosures and formal complaints of harmful sexual behaviour are handled effectively, consistently and in a timely manner.

We have developed several methods for providing feedback on the draft policy and would appreciate any contribution to this policy’s development you wish to make. You can provide feedback using one of the following tools.

You will find an indicative timeline for the consultation process here in our workplan. 

We thank you in advance for your time and consideration on this very important matter.

Feedback on the draft University policy addressing harmful sexual behaviours can be provided through an individual or group meeting with either the Executive Director, Student Experience or the Director, Health, Safety & Wellbeing.
