What the idea is about:
Consent classes should be part of the induction week timetable for new students along with library inductions and personal tutor meetings etc. These should make clear what consent is and what it is not and be given by trained consent workshop leaders. This would bring us in line with many other universities.
Why have you proposed it?:
A recent survey by The Tab found that 38% of female Leeds university students had experienced sexual assault. This is unacceptable and both the union and the university ought to be taking a stance to ensure that our students can feel safe at university.
