Be A Better Human

In 2017, The Australian Human Rights Commission conducted a randomised survey of university students, including students here at QUT, and released the National Report on Sexual Assault and Sexual Harassment at Australian Universities. The report offered many suggestions for Universities to adopt and while we think those recommendations are fantastic, here at QUT we want to do even better!

This initiative was created with a group of Flinders University students, who graciously allowed us here at QUT to modify it to reflect our campus culture and what we think everyone needs to appreciate – consent, respect and empathy. The campaign is called Be a Better Human, because we don’t just want it to be about what we shouldn’t do; we want it to be about self-improvement for everyone. And when we say ‘everyone’, we really do mean everyone. We’re encouraging everyone who is part of our campus community to take a moment and consider how we can ‘better’ our behaviour. Join the discussion online with #BeABetterHuman.

Let’s figure out how we can all be better humans.
