“Do you feel safe on campus?” #FutureBeats

This week on Future Beats brought to you by HEAIDS.

The focus was on sexual violence at Universities. This year Dr Naledi Pandor had established a team which looks at dealing with such violence at higher institutions of learning.

The Durban University of Technology has now released their communique with regards to reporting gender-based violence. These are the steps to follow when reporting at DUT:

1. All reporting must be directed to respective Deputy Vice-Chancellors, where the incident occurred.

2. In respect of incidents that take place within the Finance, Procurement and Registrar’s department must be reported to the Senior Director: Human Resources

3. An affidavit must be made with the Protection Services.

4. Counselling services must be sought with Employee Wellness Unit within Human Resources (in the case of staff) and Student Counselling Services (in the case of students).

On the show the question was “Do you feel safe on campus?” and students shared their views. Listen to the FULL show podcast below:
