Taskforce to help reduce violence against women and girls on university campuses

A taskforce to help reduce violence against women and girls on university campuses was announced by Business Secretary Sajid Javid on 6 September 2015.

Universities UK has been asked to set up and lead the taskforce with the support of the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills. The taskforce will work with the higher education sector, to develop a code of practice to bring about cultural change, leverage existing complaints mechanisms more effectively and improve engagement with Crime Prevention Officers.
