A values-based University

At Griffith we understand that equity, diversity and inclusion is our strength. We embrace diversity and inclusion to ensure that all staff are provided with a safe, supportive and productive environment. We are committed to social justice and see the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as one powerful articulation of these values.
