Diversity and inclusion

Celebrating diversity and promoting equity and inclusion in our campus communities

We respect the dignity of all students and champion equity, diversity and inclusion. We seek to remove barriers and improve access to university for people who may have experienced personal or financial hardship, or educational disadvantage. Our targeted programs assist with transition into university life and success in the learning community and include peer mentoring, workshops and other resources.

Transition and support services

We help a wide range of Griffith students who may need additional support to settle in and succeed at university. Our programs and services assist with the transition into university life and promote an inclusive learning environment. At Griffith, everyone belongs.

Outreach and partnerships

We work with a variety of stakeholders, including local schools, TAFEs and community groups, to create educational partnerships that raise awareness and aspirations for higher education. Our customised outreach activities help develop capacity for university study and are designed and delivered with relevant and successful Griffith role models and mentors.
