Campus shame: One in five students sexually harassed at universities last year

Today, the Australian Human Rights Commission released its long-awaited report of 30,000 students at 39 Australian universities on the issue, revealing assault and harassment is occurring at disturbingly high rates.

One in five students were sexually harassed at an Australian university last year. 1.6% of students were sexually assaulted at an Australian university setting in the past two years.

Colleges are particular areas of concern – with women four times as likely as men to be sexually assaulted in these settings.
