Allegations of assault, bullying, harassment and discrimination against students or by students are taken very seriously at UNSW. The grounds for discrimination and harassment are clearly set out in Commonwealth and State Anti-Discrimination legislation. You can read details of the legislation provided by the Australian Human Rights Commission. This legislation provides the basis for the University's Equal Opportunity in Education Policy Statement (PDF).
If you have been assaulted, threatened, harassed or discriminated against you are encouraged to think about your safety and support needs and to know your rights. Your safety and support needs are important so please think about your needs and consider the following options for support.
If you have been assaulted, threatened, harassed or discriminated against by any member of staff or another student because of your race, religion, sexuality, age, disability or gender identity, it is important you follow the process as outlined in the Student Complaint Procedure.
