The University does not tolerate discrimination or sexual harassment. Such behaviour is unacceptable and may be subject to disciplinary action in accordance with University policies and procedures.
Deakin University's harassment and discrimination complaints procedures for staff and students are designed to ensure that:
If a student or a staff member feels they have been discriminated against, harassed, sexually harassed, victimised or vilified at Deakin University, they are encouraged to take the following steps:
Equity and Diversity staff can assist with complaints of discrimination or sexual harassment. The University also has trained Harassment and Discrimination Contact Officers who can provide advice, support and information for people with discrimination or sexual harassment complaints.
Harassment and Discrimination Contact Officers can assist with strategies for telling someone their behaviour is inappropriate.
If the matter can't be resolved informally, staff may make a complaint using the University's discrimination and harassment complaint forms.
If you feel that the matter can't be resolved informally, complete the Discrimination and Sexual Harassment Complaints Form.
