What we're doing to keep you safe

We are all responsible for creating a safe and inclusive campus. Here at Federation University we have, and continue to take action to proactively prevent, as well as responsibly respond to, issues of violence and sexual harm.

We have implemented changes to make our learning spaces, campuses, residences and broader community safer and more respectful places for everyone to enjoy.

This is a snapshot of the many actions we have taken:

  • Being a signatory organisation to Communities of Respect and Equality - a project aimed at ending gendered violence through equity targets and goals.
  • Every year we provide intensive face-to-face training for our student leaders about preventing and responding to violence including sexual harassment and assault. The training is delivered to Residential Advisors, Student Senate members, club and society leaders and our mentors.
  • Our online training course about equity, respect and consent, Equal Rights are Your Rights, is delivered to all students on enrolment through the Moodle platform. Face-to-face training for all students is delivered at every campus during first semester and mid-year orientation.
  • Our Safer Campuses team as well as Risk, Health and Safety committees regularly review safety concerns including the handling of threats, the safety of our physical environments and cyber-safety.
