The Students’ Union are launching a consent campaign this week

Posters about consent will be put up around the SU

This week, the Students’ Union are launching a consent campaign. Posters will be put up around the SU to inform students about consent.

There are already posters up around the Union stating that the University has a zero-tolerance policy towards sexual harassment.

The consent campaign will take this further by raising awareness and spreading information about sexual consent.

Consent is an important issue for the university. Sheffield have run consent “conversations” and consent workshops for first years in the past.

Women’s Officer, Serena Cavasin wrote on the Women’s Committee Facebook page: “Consent education remains a top priority for both our SU and the University.

“We want all our students to understand and practice consent, so that everyone can enjoy university life feeling safe and always having their choices respected.”
