Safe Schools & Universities

The Safe Schools and Universities team is working to ensure that schools and universities are places where sexual harassment is not tolerated and where cases of sexual harassment are appropriately dealt with.

Want to make a difference at your university or school? 

We provide trainings for students, faculty, administration and staff and offer technical support to universities to adopt an anti-sexual harassment policy and set up and run a specific unit to implement and raise awareness of the policy. The policy outlines mechanisms and guidelines for reporting sexual harassment, prevention activities such as trainings and awareness rising, and disciplinary measures against offenders.

We are happy that since the start of this work in 2013, Cairo University successfully adopted a policy in fall semester 2014. We are now working with Cairo University and student volunteers to support universities across the country to adopt a anti-sexual harassment policy and set up a Anti-Harassment and Violence Against Women Unit.
