Respect, now, always

All members of the UQ College community have a right to feel welcome, safe and supported. We are committed to providing safe and inclusive campus communities, free from harassment, bullying, discrimination and assault and encourage members of the UQ College community to report and seek support when these behaviours occur.

The booklet, which you can download, is to assist you on your journey throughout your program, to enable you to be able to identify bullying, sexual harassment or discrimination and have the knowledge to access available help should you need it.

If you experience these behaviours in any form, then we encourage you to take action as outlined in this information and the resources that are available to you.
