A message from the Vice-Chancellor Professor Greg Craven
ACU is a place of safety, respect, inclusion and equity. The University is committed to ensuring all our campuses are completely free of harassment and discrimination. We expect all our staff and students to behave in a manner that is respectful, inclusive and fair, on every campus and at all times. There is absolutely no tolerance for sexual assault or sexual harassment at ACU.
This year I will be chairing the University’s Respect. Now. Always. (RNA) Advisory Committee. The committee oversees the implementation of activities and projects designed to promote and facilitate safe, inclusive and equitable student experiences on all ACU campuses and at all University endorsed activities. The committee meets three times per year, and reports into the University’s Senior Executive Group. It comprises 23 members with staff and student representatives across the whole university, including a representative from NSW Police.
Some current ACU RNA initiatives include:
Safety is a team effort. I encourage all ACU staff and students to familiarise themselves with the following information.
Student Safety - https://www.acu.edu.au/student-life/student-safety
On campus counselling and Disability Service – free and confidential support for ACU students.
Student Advocacy Service – free and confidential information and advice to assist with navigating University policies and procedures.

For emergencies call triple zero (000).
For campus incidents call the ACU National Security Centre on 1300 729 452 or dial 8888 from an internal ACU phone.
