New anonymous reporting tool launches on Pink Shirt Day

At UC we want everyone to feel safe on campus and to report any behaviour that makes you feel uncomfortable for any reason. 

Today we’ve launched a new anonymous online reporting tool, Report It, to coincide with Pink Shirt Day, the global movement that celebrates diversity, promotes positive relationships and takes a stand against bullying.

You can use Report It to raise concerns anonymously. We understand you may not always feel comfortable making a formal complaint and would prefer to remain anonymous.

The information provided via Report It will be used to inform future strategies and education initiatives that address behaviour and improve respect and inclusiveness at UC.

Bullying or harassment, whether on or off campus, is not okay. Without exception UC will not tolerate bullying, harassment or discrimination of any kind.

We can all work together to build an even stronger and supportive community for all.

  • More information about the Report It tool is available here.
  • You can find the Report It tool here.
  • You can still make a formal complaint by following the Raise a concern process here.

Pink Shirt Day – Friday 17 May

Tomorrow it’s Pink Shirt Day! All students and staff are encouraged to wear pink and join the global movement that celebrates diversity, promotes positive relationships and takes a stand against bullying.

Pink Shirt Day began in Canada in 2007 when two students took a stand against homophobic bullying after a new student was bullied for wearing pink.

Here in Aotearoa New Zealand the Pink Shirt Day campaign is run by the Mental Health Foundation. Celebrated annually, the campaign is all about creating schools, workplaces and communities where all people feel safe, valued and respected.     

Check out the Pink Shirt Day website here for more information, stories and resources. And don’t forget to wear your pink shirt tomorrow.
