Respect. Now. Always: a commitment to safe campuses
Published: Wednesday 11th September 2019
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:
Inclusion of RNA information in the compulsory ACU Staff Induction Program
