The Division aims to create an inclusive campus for students and staff to reach their full potential, regardless of their background and to promote the value and benefits of diversity for students, staff and visitors.

At UNSW, we believe diversity provides invaluable perspectives enriching the learning, teaching and working experiences for our students and staff. 

Our aim is to improve the educational outcomes for students who are underrepresented in higher education, particularly those from low socioeconomic backgrounds.  

Initiatives

Arc and UNSW have partnered in an initiative called 'Be A Better Human' in order to help strengthen a respectful and inclusive culture.Together we want to encourage everyone to do more when it comes to understanding, preventing and responding to disrespectful behaviours.

UNSW appoints new Diversity Champions every two years. These passionate individuals work closely with the Division of Equity Diversity & Inclusion to champion key portfolio areas of inclusion and diversity at UNSW.

Over 50 free events and activities are scheduled throughout the week of 25 - 29 October, addressing topics including age diversity, cultural and linguistic diversity, disability inclusion, gender diversity, Indigenous knowledge, LGBTIQ+ inclusion, mental health and neurodiversity.
