How to report an incident

Violence, abuse, racism and harassment have no place at our University. If you have witnessed or experienced sexual assault, harassment, domestic and family violence, racism, bullying or discrimination, you are not alone and it is not your fault.

Everyone has the right to feel safe and supported on campus.  We encourage you where it is safe to be an active bystander to eliminate violence, abuse, racism, and harassment. If you see or experience sexual assault, harassment, domestic and family violence, racial discrimination, or hatred, don’t put up with it – speak up, seek support and report. 

You can read more information about racism and discrimination at the University in our Anti-Racism and Cultural Safety Policy.

If you would like to learn more about how to become an active bystander, you can express your interest in the UOWX accredited Bystander Intervention training. This training provides participants with the tools they need to safely intervene when they are confronted with harmful, threatening or inappropriate behaviour.
