About cultural inclusion at Monash

As one of Australia's leading higher education institutions, Monash University's commitment to equity and inclusion is as integral to its identity and reputation as its excellence in teaching and research. Monash is a progressive and innovative University and as part of its social justice agenda has  made  a commitment to promote and sustain a culture that is free from race-based discrimination and harassment and that values the cultural diversity of its student and staff population.

Monash is an international university with campuses in Australia and across the world and operates in an increasingly globalised working and learning environment. In addition to its global presence Monash has a diverse student body and staff profile drawn from different backgrounds, religions, cultures and  countries. This provides the University with the opportunity to celebrate and share our community's unique cultural histories and identities and learn from each other.

In 2013 Monash University pledged formal support of the Australian Human Rights Commission's Racism. It Stops with Me campaign. The campaign invites organisations and individuals to reflect on what they can do to counter racism wherever it happens and highlights that we prevent and reduce racism through the actions we take individually and collectively. Monash will utilise its communication  channels to promote the campaign and identify and implement specific activities to support its commitment to cultural inclusion through training, events and resource development.
