Equal opportunity at Monash

Monash is committed to promoting equal opportunity in employment, education and service delivery in accordance with universal principles of equity, fairness and social justice and in compliance with anti-discrimination laws.

We want our students and staff to be able to enjoy an environment free from all forms of unlawful discrimination, harassment, vilification and victimisation. To help achieve this, we require all staff, students, contractors and visitors to ensure their conduct complies with the Monash University's Equal Opportunity Policy (pdf, 0.17 mb) and its supporting procedures.

We want an inclusive and flexible environment for both students and staff. To this end, we:

  • seek to identify and remove any remaining systemic barriers to equitable access and participation
  • use inclusive language and practices
  • develop and facilitate programs that support inclusion.

Please get in touch with Respectful Communities if you need any advice or information relating to diversity, inclusive practices or equal opportunity at Monash.
