We want all our staff and students to feel comfortable and safe expressing their own unique identities.
Fostering a welcoming, respectful and safe campus environment for our students and staff is something for which we continuously strive.
At the University of Newcastle, we know that support for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, queer or questioning, and asexual colleagues and students must extend beyond the symbolism of a rainbow pedestrian crossing and events such as Pride.
We also acknowledge the diversity and intersections within the (LGBTIQA+) community and by listening to people’s unique lived experiences, we will continue to create more inclusive policies, curriculums, and campus
Transitioning at our University
We have a commitment to provide a safe and inclusive environment for all staff and students regardless of their gender identity.
The ALLY Network aims to create a more inclusive culture at the University by promoting greater visibility and awareness of those who are diverse in their gender, sexuality and/or sex characteristics.
The University of Newcastle acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands within our footprint areas: Awabakal, Darkinjung, Biripai, Worimi, Wonnarua, and Eora Nations. We also pay respect to the wisdom of our Elders past and present.
