Diversity and inclusion

Diversity and inclusion

Macquarie University prides itself on being a vibrant, diverse and innovative university which prioritises inclusion, equity and diversity in employment and education. 

Inclusiveness is about creating systems which are fair and which allow access for all people who have the potential to benefit from a higher education, regardless of their background.

It is also about creating a work environment where people from diverse backgrounds are represented and have the opportunity to contribute meaningfully and develop professionally. To this end, the University is committed to creating a work and study environment where all members of the University community can flourish.

The University has recently established the Student Diversity and Inclusion team who are tasked with:

  • scoping and developing the Macquarie Student Diversity and Inclusion Strategic Framework;
  • providing expert advice across a range of student diversity and inclusion issues; and
  • developing individual and organisational capacity though education and project implementation to support student equity needs

One of the project priorities for the team is to implement the Respect. Now. Always. (RNA) campaign, which aims to improve our capacity to prevent and respond to sexual misconduct incidents involving Macquarie students and staff.  For RNA support information please visit www.mq.edu.au/respect
