Welcome to Student Equity and Inclusion
Southern Cross University is committed to being an inclusive and culturally safe work and study environment where all students and staff are valued. We are proud of our diversity and are committed to fostering a progressive learning community.
We value our engagement across our varied communities and benefit from the knowledge, lived experience and perspectives they bring.
Student Equity and Inclusion provides leadership and direction in the development and implementation of the University's equity, diversity and inclusion agenda, including;
- coordinating initiatives to improve the access, participation and success of students who are proportionally under-represented in higher education,
- supporting the participation and success of students with disability by facilitating the provision of reasonable adjustments, and supporting and educating the university community in matters relating to disability,
- promoting an Inclusive University including an LGBTIQ+ Ally network, and
- supporting staff to support students through a range of cultural diversity and gender and sexuality diversity professional development initiatives.
Equity & Diversity Contacts are available for students or staff who may have a query or concern about an equity or diversity matter.
