Support for sexual harassment and assault
The University of Western Australia is committed to providing an environment where students, staff and visitors are valued, respected and can realise their full potential.
Your safety and wellbeing is our priority. Sexual harm in all its forms has no place at our university or anywhere else.
UWA takes incidents of sexual harm very seriously. View the University Policy on Sexual Misconduct (Word document will download).
If you have been affected, you may need a range of supports that suit your unique situation and individual challenges, with the goal of minimising disruption to your work, study and personal goals.
If you raise an incident with us, we are here to support you. We will:
- meet you privately to provide advice and options, and facilitate connections
- treat you with respect, sensitivity, understanding and professionalism
- not judge you or blame you
- keep you informed on UWA decisions relating to your incident
It is your choice whether you make a disclosure, complaint or report to the Police. You can report anonymously; however, this can limit our capacity to support you or respond to the incident.
