Make consent and SA awareness training mandatory for committee members of all clubs, societies and teams, and have a serious, enforcable consequence for non-attendance or non-completion of training; for example being banned from Varsity, banned from booking rooms, banned from holding events or similar. This will ensure that people running societies do actually attend this essential training, and hopefully start to change the culture in a trickle-down effect!

Hi! Thanks for submitting a You Make Change!
This is something that VP Welfare and Communities, the Activities Team, and the University are all looking into as we speak. They are developing a consent training module which will have a consequence (TBD) for nonfulfillment. Hopefully this will be a training course that gets sent out for all students and not just clubs and socs so that everyone gets the chance to be educated on consent and why it is so important.
If you would like to feedback into this, please email Aycha at firstname.lastname@example.org.
