Framework for Consent

Framework for Consent at NCAD

NCAD is actively working to implement the Framework for Consent in Higher Education Institutions: Safe, Respectful, Supportive and Positive - Ending Sexual Violence and Harassment in Irish Higher Education Institutions.

NCAD has developed an Action plan outlining the steps we will take towards developing a safe and respectful institutional culture in which sexual violence and harrassment are not tolerated. The implementation of the Action plan will be overseen by a Consent Working Group (CWG) formed of key stakeholders within the college community.
