CW: Sexual harassment 

Kia ora koutou, 

This weekend, the media released an article which detailed harrowing accounts of sexual misconduct allegations against a former staff member from the University of Auckland. 

As your Students’ Association, we are incredibly disappointed that this behaviour was allowed to continue for so long. We stand with all of the victims who have come forward and we are strongly encouraging those who have been affected to seek support too.  

There are currently no official University of Auckland policies which explicitly condemn Staff / Student relationships that consider contributing factors such as power imbalances. Looking ahead, we hope to work closely with the University to develop more robust policy to ensure that both staff and students are kept safe. 

Support is available to all who may have been affected by this, please refer to the links below for more information.
