Welcome to Student Equity and Inclusion

Student Equity and Inclusion provide services and programs committed to the University's ethos of being an inclusive and culturally safe work and study environment where everyone is valued, respected and acknowledged. We seek to learn from and engage with the lived experience and perspectives of our diverse communities. In recognising and celebrating all identities and their intersectionalities, students are safe to be their authentic selves and supported to achieve their full potential.
