#SpeakOutUP is the advocacy programme of the University of Pretoria’s Transformation Office. Through #SpeakOutUP, the Transformation Office coordinates initiatives and activities aimed at addressing discrimination on prohibited grounds, Sexual and Gender-Based Violence and all forms of sexual harassment. This work is guided by the university’s Anti-Discrimination Policy (ADP), which the Transformation Office is responsible for its implementation, along with its associated protocols, and draws attention to other policies that speak to the abovementioned focus areas. 

#SpeakOutUP has a cohort of student volunteers who play a critical role in the socialization of the ADP amongst the student population across all UP campuses and residences, and in ensuring that campaigns and programmes extend to UP accredited residences which house the university’s day students. Beyond the work related to the ADP, #SpeakOutUP student volunteers run initiatives that help spotlight student issues and concerns relating to matters of transformation within the university.
