UNSW is committed to providing an environment that is free from racial discrimination, harassment, and vilification

Our goal is to continue to build a safe and inclusive community that actively embraces and supports the rich perspectives that cultural, linguistic, and religious diversity bring to student and staff life at UNSW.  This goal cannot be achieved without the conscious and genuine commitment by UNSW towards the elimination of racism and racial discrimination.  Prof Eileen Baldry, DVC EDI

Be a Better Human

UNSW and Arc are working together to develop our 'Be a Better Human' campaign, allowing staff and students to find accessible, easy to understand content that encourages respect and inclusion in our community. Under our Anti-Racism policy, part of this respect comes from recognising and eliminating microaggressions.

Support Resources

With a range of courses available you can easily build your knowledge, skills and competencies to act in a more inclusive way and Be a Better Human.

In early 2021, the Division of Equity Diversity and Inclusion offered grants of up to $2,500 to Arc Clubs and Collectives to support student-led projects focused on anti-racism activities.

Respect Week was back in 2021! Catch up with events on Racism in the Pandemic, Sexual Violence & Power, and a conversation with the UNSW Students with Disabilities Collective.

A panel discussion with students and staff looking at racism and the Black Lives Matter movement in an Australian context.

As part of Respect Week the panel discuss racism on and off campus. What to do if you experience racism, what to do to support your loved ones, and what UNSW and Arc can do to be better for our students of colour.
