This report presents the results from the Lad Culture audit conducted between December 2014 and February 2015. It provides an analysis of existing policies, training, education and support services in place within SUs and institutions to tackle lad culture. The findings are based on the thirty five SUs that responded to the survey and the twenty SUs that sent through supporting policy documents for the audit.
The aim of this report is to understand what, if anything, is being done to tackle lad culture. It seeks to identify strengths and weaknesses in current policies, to examine the quality of care given to victims and to find examples of good practice. It also recommends ways of supporting students’ unions (SUs) and higher education institutions (HEIs) in addressing lad culture.
