Respect at Uni

The University of Adelaide and the University of South Australia are joining forces to foster a culture of mutual respect and understanding. We can all work together to prevent sexual harm. 

Utilising the FRIES model (Freely given, Reversible, Informed, Enthusiastic, Specific), the event aims to empower students to consider respectful behaviour in all interactions.
