What is general misconduct?

Here at Monash, we're committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for all students, one which values inclusiveness and respect for others. The Monash Student Charter outlines the expected behaviour of students as well as how you should be treated by the University.

General misconduct describes unacceptable behaviour, and includes conduct by a student who knowingly or recklessly:

  • causes harm of any kind (physical, psychological, other)
  • threatens to or does attack, harass, intimidate, stalk, victimise, vilify or bully another person
  • engages in non-consensual sexual activity
  • breaches the law or a University statute
  • disrupts the orderly conduct of the University.

This is further defined in the Monash University Council Regulations.

What to do

The University encourages you to let us know if you've been subjected to or witnessed unacceptable behaviour by another student.
