Sexual Misconduct

Sexual and gendered violence of all forms is a pervasive reality in today's world.

Being in the education sector, universities have a unique opportunity and responsibility to effect social change and eliminate sexual and gendered violence in our society. These behaviours, values and beliefs are discordant with our values, and codes of conduct. It is our legal, and moral obligation to ensure everyone at UNSW feels safe and is treated with respect.

The Sexual Misconduct Portal allows anyone to report an incident of sexual assault or harassment, whether you have been directly affected, are a witness to an incident or a support person. Reports can be made anonymously and will remain confidential unless specifically stated by the person reporting.

Behaviour that amounts to sexual assault or sexual harassment is not accepted at UNSW. If you are a student or a staff who has been affected by sexual misconduct, here is information about the support and reporting options available inside and outside of UNSW.

At UNSW we provide annual, comprehensive training sessions for students and staff to prevent and respond to sexual misconduct both on and off campus.

The Australian Human Rights Commission examined the nature and prevalence of sexual harassment in Australian workplaces, the drivers of this harassment and measures to address and prevent sexual harassment.

Sexual misconduct affects every segment of our society, and there is no place for it at this university. It is discordant with our UNSW culture to create a safe and respectful community for everyone.
