Safety shouldn’t be an afterthought. We pride ourselves on offering a welcoming environment for everyone, and we take your safety seriously. Each student and staff member at each of our campuses has the right to feel safe and to be treated in a respectful way.
Safety is also a team effort. Everyone has a role to play, whether through your own actions or by promoting and displaying ethical-bystander behaviour.
We’re committed to ensuring our campuses are places of safety and respect for all, and free of harassment and discrimination.
We have zero tolerance for sexual assault and sexual harassment. And we expect all of our staff and students to behave in a manner that is respectful, inclusive and fair. On every campus, at all times.
There are a number of ACU policies, procedures and protocols to prevent and respond to harassment (including sexual harassment) and discrimination.

To keep our students safe on campus, we've united with universities across the country to promote Respect. Now. Always.
This campaign raises awareness of sexual assault and sexual harassment, and lifts visibility of student support services. It also aims to collect data to improve university policies and services, and share best practices.
