Bullying, harassment and discrimination

 We expect you to promote a climate of mutual respect and we are committed to identifying and eradicating these types of behaviour in any form.

If you think you are being bullied, harassed or discriminated against you should ask yourself:

  • Is this directed at me (or a group of similar students)?
  • Is it something other people would find unreasonable?
  • Is the behaviour repeated over time (possibly in different ways)?

If your answer to any or all of these questions is 'Yes', you should lodge a complaint or contact the Student Complaints Office on (03) 9479 5308 to talk about the problem.

Vilification, harassment, discrimination and bullying are breaches of the University's General Misconduct Statute 2009.

When using social media, it is important to consider how others may be affected by your comments. Here are some things to consider.
