Supporting Survivors of Rape and Sexual Violence

This session is delivered in partnership with Cambridge Rape Crisis Centre, and covers the prevalence of rape and sexual violence, its definition and the legal framework; attitudes, the effect and impact of sexual violence; barriers to disclosure and reporting; working with and supporting survivors; internal and external sources of support and the University procedure for reporting student cases of harassment or sexual misconduct.

 

The 2 hour session is aimed at all collegiate University staff who work directly with students and therefore may receive a disclosure from a student regarding harassment or sexual misconduct.  Following the course staff will have the knowledge to respond appropriately to a disclosure, to signpost to a range of appropriate support and to explain what reporting mechanisms are available within the University.

Magdalene College

Tour: The Pepys Library

Come and see the fascinating collection of the Pepys Library, Magdalene College Cambridge.  The library is housed in their original bookcases, or ‘book presses’ as Pepys called them, and the collection includes his original diaries.  The event will include a talk by the Pepys Librarian, Dr. Jane Hughes, and further time to look around the library display cases.

We regret that, due to the historic nature of the building, that there is no lift access to the library.  It is situated on the first floor of the Pepys building, Magdalene College.

Meet at the bottom of the stairs leading up to the Pepys Library.
