Respect@Uni Week

Universities nationwide are coming together for Respect@Uni Week 18-22 March to highlight the importance of respect, equality, and inclusion in our campus communities and online spaces.

ACU is committed to creating safe environments free from violence. Each of us plays a vital role in preventing and addressing issues like sexual harassment and assault. This year, ACU is coordinating a university-wide event for both staff and students.

This Respect@Uni week, the Safeguarding and Student Safety team have crafted five days of intriguing, thought-provoking, and engaging interactions and events. These will showcase what we're doing to champion respect, inclusion, and equality across our diverse staff and student community.
