March 2015

CHEER member, Dr Alison Phipps - along with the Centre for Innovation and Research in Childhood and Youth's Graduate Teaching/Research Assistant, Elsie Whittington - has developed a workshop for university managers, staff and students on student 'lad culture' and its links to sexual harrassment and violence. It covers definitions of ‘lad culture’, recent NUS research findings on the prevalence of sexual harassment and violence amongst students, and an overview of what is currently being done to tackle the problem, as well as suggestions for ways forward.

The workshop was piloted with staff and students from the Universities of Bath and Bath Spa on 20th March with 100 percent of participants saying they would recommend it to others and 91 percent saying the workshop had equipped them with ideas about how to tackle ‘lad culture’ and sexual violence.

If you would like Alison and Elsie to deliver this workshop to a group, contact a.e.phipps@sussex.ac.uk.
