Respect. Now. Always.

The University of South Australia is committed to a healthy, safe university culture that embraces and celebrates the diversity of our community of students and staff. This means we strive to ensure our campuses and learning environments are free from bullying, discrimination and sexual violence.

At UniSA we foster a respectful environment where we value our students and staff. We have a full suite of programs and services in place – from student and staff counselling as well as mental health and wellbeing programs.  If you, or someone you know, has been affected by an incident of sexual assault or harassment, support is always available.
