Preventing and tackling gender based and sexual violence

At the University of Stirling, we are committed to taking all steps in our power to prevent and tackle gender based and sexual violence in all its forms - including rape and sexual assault, harassment, stalking or coercive control. In partnership with the University of Stirling Students' Union, we want to encourage a culture of respect and create a university community that does not tolerate – and feels comfortable to challenge and report – gender based and sexual violence in Scottish society.

This website summarises our joint approach to this issue and provides information about support available for those affected by gender based or sexual violence, or those supporting a friend or colleague.

If you are concerned about a student

You can find a range of guidance and resources aimed at safeguarding students' wellbeing on our supporting staff to support students page.
