Diversity Fest 2019 is coming to an end this week. See the last events and activities happening this week here>
As part of Diversity Fest we have been asking students about what makes a diverse community and how we can all contribute to making UC a more inclusive community.
In this video UCSA Postgrad Rep Katie Mills got out and about to find out what diversity looks like to different people and what we can do to be more accepting other’s points of view.
Join the conversation – we want to hear from as many of you as possible, if you missed the chance to share your thoughts with Katie please include them in the comments below.

Thursdays in Black is a student club at UC that not only seeks to prevent rape and sexual violence but to promote healthy relationships and to offer support for our students.
We want everyone to feel safe in our community and feel like your voice is being heard so you can feel empowered to stand up for what you believe in.
Thursdays in Black is here to help. We have set up an anonymous helpline using pre-paid phones so you can text and discuss any topic or incident that may have made you feel uncomfortable or distressed. The student team will also be able to let you know what other support options might be available to you.
Sometimes you just want to be able to talk to someone – Thursdays in Black is here for you.
Anonymous helpline – contact the Thursdays in Black student support team on any of these numbers

Harassment and bullying can take different forms, including oral, written, physical, online or other non-verbal forms.
When you enrolled at UC you signed up to the Student Code of Conduct which outlines regulations and policies you are required to comply with while studying at UC.
We all have a responsibility to promote and maintain a respectful and inclusive culture and ensure our behaviour is not offensive or harmful to others. It is your responsibility to ensure you are familiar with the Code of Conduct and understand the consequences of not complying. Read the Student Code of Conduct.

You can voice a concern, complaint, grievance, or appeal a decision, without fear of disadvantage. Your discussions will be confidential and no action will be taken without your consent. See more information about raising a concern.
You can anonymously report any form of harassment or bullying at UC using Report It. Complaints are kept on file and used to build a picture of the culture on campus and to inform initiatives.
