Combating harassment and discrimination

Deakin University will not tolerate discrimination or sexual harassment.

Our key strategies for combating harassment and discrimination include:

  • policies that make clear everyone's responsibilities to prevent harassment and discrimination
  • staff training programs to educate and raise awareness, including the online Harassment and Discrimination training which all staff must complete
  • a network of trained Harassment and Discrimination Contact Officers who can provide advice, support and information.
