#cyberbullying | #cyberbully | Third-level staff, students to be surveyed on sexual harassment | #parenting | #parenting | #kids


All staff and students in higher education are to be surveyed on their experiences of sexual violence and sexual harassment during the coming weeks as part of a “zero tolerance” initiative to create safe campuses for all.

In addition, all colleges are being required to record and report cases of sexual harassment and bullying of staff and students on an annual basis.

The move comes amid concern at the scale of the problem. A survey by the Union of Students in Ireland (USI) of 6,000 people last year found almost 30 per cent of female college students said they had experienced non-consensual sexual penetration.

UCD’s handling of a case in which academic Dr Aoibhinn Ní Shúilleabháin was harassed by a colleague for two years has also put the issue into the spotlight.

Minister for Higher Education Simon Harris is to publish a new national survey on sexual violence and sexual harassment on Monday which will be sent to all 30,000 staff and 235,000 students in higher education.

It will ask students and staff to detail any experience of sexual misconduct, sexual harassment and sexual violence.

This includes crimes of sexual violence, sexual cyberbullying of any kind including non-consensual taking and/or sharing of intimate images, stalking behaviours and any verbal or physical harassment in a sexual context.

It will also ask staff their knowledge of policies, the availability of training and whether they feel safe in reporting allegations.
