Zero tolerance for discrimination


Message from the Vice-Chancellor

The University of Auckland has zero tolerance for discrimination. Racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, ableism and other ‘isms’ share one key feature: they ascribe negative characteristics to a group, and assume that those characteristics apply to all members of the group. I encourage anyone who experiences such behaviour to seek resolution via the appropriate processes, including if necessary complaints procedures, so the University can act appropriately.

Support is available from:

Information about the University’s commitment to being safe, inclusive and equitable can be found in the:

I encourage anyone who witnesses unacceptable discrimination here to challenge those behaviours and support those who are being discriminated.
