All students at UC are entitled to be viewed equally. There should be no question in this. If you or someone else you know experience inequality, then you should never be hesitant to reach out. As a community we need to take care of one another, so don’t let any form of bullying or harassment happen without reaching out for assistance.
Uni is a place where you can meet different people and make new connections, and UC is committed to creating a diverse environment that is packed full of differing cultures, religions and beliefs. Each and every person within the UC community should be free to express their beliefs and should be respectful of others.
UC provides equal support and opportunities, and there is no reason to deprive any individual student, or specific group of students, from any opportunity. If you experience any form of harassment, bullying or discrimination, please do not hesitate to raise your concerns – if you need support, you can get in touch with the Equity and Wellbeing Advisory Group. They will be able to assist you with any question or complaint you may have now or in the future. Of course the UCSA will always be willing to listen to problems you may be encountering in your time at UC.
Equality and wellbeing at UC does not need to fit into any one category, but there are a few specialist areas that could be of assistance at one time or another. These include:
- Māori student support
- Pasifika student support
- International student support
- LGBTQIA+ student and staff support
- parenting and childcare
- Equity and Disability service
