UC is a close-knit community of people committed to creating a campus culture of belonging, understanding, inclusiveness and caring. Ākonga Tū, Ākonga Ora.
As a student you can be assured that without exception the University will not tolerate harassment or racism of any kind. We support institutions, policies and practices that protect and promote individuals on the basis of who they are and what they do, not on the basis of the colour of their skin, their sexuality, religious beliefs or who their parents were. The Student Code of Conduct is one key document that reflects our values.
Get to Know the Code
As a student, you’ll try new things, make mistakes and learn from them, but you still have a responsibility to keep yourself and others safe and not bring UC into disrepute. When you enrolled you would have agreed to comply with UC’s regulations and policies, including the Student Code of Conduct.
If you haven’t already, take a look at Know the Code which sets out your rights and responsibilities and aligns with the Student Code of Conduct. It highlights the partnership between UC and students to provide a safe learning, living and working environment.
Would Grandma approve?
UCSA President, Sam Brosnahan has some sound advice when it comes to knowing the code…
“While we’re here to support and advocate for you, we students also have a responsibility to act positively. Here’s a tip: before copying that, or posting that, or climbing that, ask yourself, would grandma approve? Know your responsibilities, keep yourself safe and look out for your mates.”
