Respectful Behaviour and Culture Module

In Semester 1 2021, La Trobe launched a new subject on our LMS called Respectful Behaviour and Culture (RPC8010). This module is part of the University’s long-standing commitment to fostering a safe, respectful and inclusive community free of sexual harm, discrimination and violence. This new subject has replaced Consent Matters and is available to all La Trobe University students.

This subject covers a range of topics, including:

  • Rights and Responsibilities
  • Respectful Relationships
  • Consent
  • Sexual Harm
  • Violence Against Women
  • Respectful Culture
  • Bystander Action
  • Where to get help and support

The subject has two quizzes but is not a mandatory module. Certain selected student groups such as student leaders, on-campus residents and mentors may be required to complete this subject as part of their induction program.

By completing this online subject, you can contribute to creating a more harmonious campus and working culture. It will also provide you with valuable knowledge and skills to take with you to the workplace.

Should you have any questions or queries regarding this subject, please contact the Student Health and Wellbeing Centre.
