Respect At UQ

We all have the right to be safe and respected at University and in all aspects of our lives.

Students enrolled at UQ in Semester 1, 2024 are required to complete the mandatory ‘Respect at UQ’ training module by 5pm on Sunday, 10 March 2024.  You can complete the module via UQ Essentials.

If you have concerns about the impact of completing the module on your wellbeing you can request a deferral or a modified version of the module by submitting a Respect at UQ Training Adjustment Request. You can also access support through the Sexual Misconduct Support Unit (SMSU).

Note: Students who have not completed the module or requested an adjustment by this time will have their access to Blackboard restricted.  This means you will not be able to access your course materials, and this will not be grounds to qualify for an extension to assessment if it impacts your studies.

It is important that we all understand how we can contribute to a culture of consent and respect, and how we can best support someone who has experienced sexual assault or harassment.

The content of the Respect at UQ module has been developed with input from subject matter specialists, along with staff and students, and is designed to give members of the UQ community safe, practical information about:
•    understanding and navigating consent and respectful relationships
•    myths about sexual misconduct
•    how to be an ethical bystander and safely intervene if you witness harmful behaviour
•    how you can support someone who has experienced sexual misconduct
•    where to seek support and reporting options at UQ.
