    UniSA is committed to a healthy, safe and respectful university culture where all students and staff are valued. This means we have zero tolerance for sexual assault and sexual harassment. 

    If you know someone who has been affected by an incident of sexual assault or sexual harassment, supporting them can have a big impact on their recovery and willingness to access support services. On our website you can find a list of steps to equip you with the skills to respond to disclosures in a compassionate, respectful and helpful manner.

    If you have experienced sexual assault or sexual harassment yourself, there is a range of support options available to you. Regardless of when or where the incident occurred, support is always available and we encourage you to make use of the free and confidential services at UniSA or, if you prefer, outside of the University.
