At every Australian university, safety and wellbeing is a top priority.
Universities Australia works actively to help support all member universities to enhance efforts at each institution and at the sector level to keep students and staff safe.
On 17 November 2023, Universities Australia released a Charter on sexual harm to support the ongoing work universities and other organisations in the community do to address sexual harm.
This guide aims to drive collaboration between primary prevention practitioners and foster a culture of working to dismantle the values, norms, practices, and structures that enable gender-based violence and sexual harm in our university communities.
In February 2016, Universities Australia began the Respect. Now. Always. initiative to prevent sexual violence in university communities.
Universities Australia (UA) welcomes the opportunity to make a submission with respect to proposed amendments to the Defence Trade Controls Act 2012 (the Act) as articulated in the Exposure Draft of the Defence Trade Controls Amendment Bill 2023 (the Bill) and Explanatory Memorandum.
UA appreciates the ongoing engagement on the implementation of the ARC Review recommendations.
General Practitioners (GPs) are a vital part of our health care workforce. They play a major role, both individually and as part of multidisciplinary teams, in providing frontline care to people in our communities. GPs develop ongoing relationships with patients to provide holistic, continuous care across the different life stages that takes into account the broader context in which people live. This type of care is the cornerstone of Australia’s heath system.
Universities Australia welcomes the allocation of additional Commonwealth supported places to support universities to educate more doctors in regional and rural Australia.
Universities Australia notes the introduction of the Defence Trade Controls Amendment Bill 2023.
