The Committee seeks to achive these Goals through

  • Dissemination of Information - through production, distribution and cirulation of printed materials, posters and hand outs.
  • Awareness Workshops - about sexual harassment for faculty, non-teaching staff and students. The aim is to develop nonthreatening and non-intimidating atmosphere of mutual learning.
  • Counselling - Confidential counselling service is an important service as it provides a safe space to speak about the incident and how it has affected the victim because sexual harassment cases are rarely reported and is a sensitive issue.
