Curtin University

Welcome from the Vice-Chancellor

Valuing sexual and gender diversity

Curtin respects and values the diversity of its students, staff and the University community and is committed to creating an environment that is free from discrimination and harassment. Our aim is for an inclusive University culture which goes beyond legislative compliance to an environment in which all people feel respected, valued, welcome and safe.

Curtin has made, and continues to make, significant inroads towards inclusiveness in relation to gender, race and disability. Equally, we are concerned to ensure the inclusivity of people of sexual and gender diversity.

In October 2006, the Ally Network and inaugural Ally training for Curtin staff and students was launched, leading towards creating a more informed and supportive environment for students and staff who are gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and intersex (GLBTI).

This area brings together information about the University's commitment to sexuality and gender diversity, including: staff and student rights and responsibilities, supports within the University including the Ally network, Ally training details, GLBTI research, news and research and Curtin's participation in Pride events.

I encourage you to use the information in this section, and the many other resources the University offers.
