The Equity and Diversity Office, through its activities, events and programs, supports the access, participation and success of all students at the University and has a particular focus on students who are:
- from regional and remote areas,
- from low socio-economic backgrounds,
- Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples,
- people with disabilities,
- lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or intersex people, and
- people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.
The Equity & Diversity Office has developed and supports a network of Equity & Diversity Contacts who are a point of contact for students with a query or concern about an equity or diversity matter.
Students who require advice and assistance with academic adjustments and support due to an equity matter or disability should make contact with the Student Access & Inclusion Service.
The Equity and Diversity Office offers the UniMentor program for all commencing undergraduate students to help them with settling into university life.
The Equity & Diversity Office also coordinates the University's initiatives to widen participation of students who are proportionally under-represented in higher education.
Southern Cross University proudly supports the Human Rights Commission Racism. It Stops With Me campaign. As a supporter organisation we commit to undertake activities to challenge racist attitudes and to educate about racism and its detrimental effects to all of society.
