Equal Employment Opportunity means that all people, regardless of gender, race, colour, age, marital or parental status, sexual preference, disability or religious belief have the same access to employment opportunities and conditions, and can expect to work in an environment that is free of discrimination or harassment.
Our Mission statement declares its commitment to equity and social justice as one of the foundations of excellence in teaching, research and community service.
In keeping with our Mission we foster the promotion of equity through diversity. We seek to engage men and women from every segment of society in our pursuit of excellence, and to value the contribution of each and every student, staff and community member.
We have a commitment to inclusion and equal opportunity, welcoming all individuals, including those from groups that have been marginalised and previously excluded. We also seek to reflect the diversity of the community that we serve – in the composition of our own community, curriculum, and in our approach to teaching and learning, research and community service.
In addition to our Mission, we also have legislative responsibilities to fulfil. In fulfilling these commitments to equity and social justice we have identified groups amongst staff and students who have, through previous practices and policies, been disadvantaged. We have developed plans and programs that actively address these disadvantages.
