Complaints & Concerns | Safe and Fair Community Unit

Something to report?

The Safe and Fair Community Unit (SaFCU) is a University service which provides support, advice and information to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our University community.

Ph: +61 3 6226 2560

You can report:

  • Concerns or complaints about inappropriate or concerning behaviour
  • Disclosures or reports of sexual harm, including sexual assault and sexual harassment
  • Child safety concerns
  • General complaints about a service or your University experience
  • Wellbeing concerns about yourself or someone you know

People are the heart of our community. We want you to be safe, feel valued, and to actively contribute to our mission. We subscribe to the fundamental values of respect and self-respect, fairness and justice, integrity, trust and trustworthiness, responsibility and honesty (UTAS Statement of Values). The University Behaviour Policy (Governance and Accountability 6.4) sets out the values, standards and expectations for behaviour that apply to our University community. When members of our community behave in a manner that is not aligned to our values and expectations, our focus is on early intervention and restoration, providing an opportunity to understand the implications of inappropriate behaviour, and to rebuild responsibility and accountability. In circumstances where the inappropriate behaviour is of a serious nature and risks to health and safety are apparent, we will act swiftly and decisively to ensure safety for our community and to maintain our values-based culture.

A safe and respectful University community is everybody's responsibility

Below is a range of policies and procedures to assist you in understanding the processes we have in place to keep yourself and others safe.

Please note, we are not an emergency or crisis service. If you or others are at risk or in an emergency situation, please call Emergency services on 000 and alert the University’s Safety and Security Team on +61 3 6226 7600.
