Charles Sturt University have joined the stand against domestic violence after partnering with the White Ribbon Project.
Deputy vice-chancellor of students Jenny Roberts has become the advocate for the project at CSU, and said education around the issue played a big role.
"The main goal of the project is using my role to facilitate respectful relationships with everyone here at the uni," she said.
"We want to educate men in particular on how to respect women and how they can help end domestic violence."

White Ribbon is an Australian organisation formed in 1992 which aims to prevent violence against women, with a particular focus on the role men can play in respecting women.
"I had to go through a comprehensive application project, an online course, and get a lot of reference and police checks before being chosen to be an advocate," Ms Roberts said.
"It gives us more resources to promote the message and raises the profile of what White Ribbon are doing."
CSU already facilitates an equity and diversity committee which Ms Roberts chairs.
"We have a gender equity strategy looking at different things we can do to promote all of the important issues we believe in surrounding that, so I am very much supported by that team too in my efforts to promote the message of White Ribbon," she said.
"This is a great thing to be able to give back to the CSU and wider community and aligns with the university values to ensure we promote a safe environment for everyone."
