As an institution deeply committed to values such as respect and self-respect, we welcome the release of the Australian Human Rights Commission’s survey on student experiences of sexual assault and sexual harassment.
The welfare and safety of our students and staff are central to how we think and act. University is a time and place of learning and growth. We believe students should feel safe and our staff should operate knowing and abiding by these principles. We should all strive to be both exemplars and beneficiaries of a positive, equitable culture.
We work to ensure our environments and processes honour these values, and do so with a strong commitment to a process of continuous improvement. We exist as part of a broader community so the issues inherent in it are inherent here also. But we are of a view our university should have a leadership role in the creation of a just and equitable society.
