How To Report Events

If you have experienced or are experiencing behaviour that you believe to be inappropriate or improper by someone associated with the school or university, we encourage you to contact the specific resources available so that follow-up and investigation, where required, can occur.

Reports of a serious nature can be expected to, in all cases, be treated as confidential and followed up with the submitter to discuss next steps. When reaching out to one of the resources, you can indicate that you are doing so in confidence.

If you are a student you can contact your program team to share your concerns and/or discuss with the other resources here.
