Confidential Reporting.

Sexual Harrassment, Sexual Assault, Bullying.

The safety and wellbeing of all our staff and students is a central tenet of the UNE culture. Everyone who participates in our community is entitled to be treated with respect at all times, whether in the office, laboratory, library, cafes or bars, engaging through social media or in our social spaces on the campus. – Professor Brigid Heywood – Vice-Chancellor & CEO

UNE has a zero tolerance approach to sexual assault and harassment and has a number of support systems in place that are available for both staff and students. No one should ever experience sexual assault or sexual harassment and these behaviours can never be excused or justified.

Anonymous reporting

UNE has a reporting tool where you can anonymously report sexual assault and/or sexual harassment to the University. By using the form, you will not be asking the University to open an investigation, but making the University aware of what has occurred that appropriate action can be taken to ensure a safer community and reduce the re-occurrence of sexual assault and harassment.  The process is anonymous and therefore confidential.  You can find the anonymous report tool here.

Raising a Grievance with SGU

The Student Grievance Unit (SGU) is an independent investigative unit which provides assistance with student related issues.  You can anonymously report issues relating to assault, harassment, bullying or any other issue with SGU.  You can speak to them confidentially and seek advice from them informally and, if you choose, you can move to a more formal process where a complaint can be investigated.  You can view further information at the SGU website.

Counselling
UNE offers free and confidential counselling services to current students (on-campus or online). You can contact CAPs by following the details on their website.

Online Study & Exams.

Transitioning from taking classes face-to-face to studying online can be stressful and for many students sitting your exams online is a daunting prospect. 

There are a number of training modules and interactive guides to help you adjust to studying in the online space. This includes:

  • Learning Online at UNE – offered through Moodle, this platform includes information and resources on using Moodle and other technologies used in online learning at UNE. IT Training, using Microsoft Applications, learning how to use ZOOM for online courses, as as well as where you can find assistance for online learning is available.
  • Online Supervised Exams Information – also on Moodle, here you will find useful how to videos and detailed information on preparing for and sitting an online examination with UNE. This hub also allows you to access all of the resources and instructions required for you to self assess whether your computer and internet connection will sustain your exams online.

While it is expected that students will make every effort to sit their exams online, the University is considering alternatives for students who can demonstrate that they are unable to access exams in this way.

Be A Better Human

In 2017, The Australian Human Rights Commission conducted a randomised survey of university students, including students here at UNE, and released the National Report on Sexual Assault and Sexual Harassment at Australian Universities. The report offered many suggestions for Universities to adopt and while we think those recommendations are fantastic, here at UNE Life we want to do even better!
