Respect.Now.Always. Training Packages

The University of New England firmly upholds the right of all our members to be treated fairly, with respect and free from threatening or inappropriate behaviour — including sexual assault, sexual or other harassment, acts or threats of violence, intimidation or discrimination — and to work, study and live in a safe and caring environment. UNE will not tolerate sexual harassment and assault, in any form or in any environment.

UNE provides two interactive and comprehensive on-line training packages on the first response to Consent Matters and Responding to Disclosures of Sexual Violence so that students and staff are confidently skilled to recognise situations and respond appropriately, or safely step away if others need help. Any questions or concerns, please contact Respect Now Always by telephone (02) 67733994 or email

Further information on the two courses and a list of emergency contacts for both students and staff is available through Respect.Now.Always.
