A message from the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Greg Craven:
ACU is a place of safety, respect, inclusion and equity. Our staff and students come from different backgrounds which makes us a diverse community, and we are proud of it.
Consistent with our mission, 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.
As Chair of the university’s Respect. Now. Always. (RNA) Advisory Committee, I work with staff across organisational units and campuses to promote and facilitate safe, inclusive and equitable student experiences on all ACU campuses and at all university-endorsed activities. Following our first meeting in 2020, I’m pleased to let you know the Student Sexual Misconduct Prevention and Response Policy and Procedure documents have now been finalised and published on our policy site.
Safety is a team effort. I encourage all ACU staff and students to read the policy and procedure and become ethical bystanders to prevent and address any sexual misconduct incidents occurring in our community.
