Reporting and Disclosure

You can disclose or report an incident at Griffith College at any time. It’s on your terms.

If you have experienced sexual assault, sexual or other harassment, bullying or discrimination it is not your fault and you are not alone.

We understand that disclosing or reporting sexual assault and harassment can be difficult and traumatic.  We are here to help, as soon as you are ready.

You may choose to report a concern anonymously. Concerns reported anonymously are taken seriously.

Reports are not reviewed after hours, on weekends, or on public holidays. If students or staff are in immediate danger or require urgent medical attention, the first step is to call emergency services on 000 (112 from mobile phones) or call Griffith University security on 1800 800 707 (extension 7777 from any University phone) if on any campus of Griffith University.

Currently enrolled students and staff of the College may choose to make a report.

Reporting a concern

You can choose to report a concern:

  • Formally: Reporting a formal concern is for the purpose of seeking investigation in addition to accessing support. Alternative reporting options are outlined below.
  • Informally/anonymously: You may choose to report a concern informally for the purpose of seeking support and/or informing the College of a safety or well-being concern. You may also choose to report anonymously. Concerns reported anonymously are taken seriously.

All reports are taken seriously.

Respectful Campus Communities

We are committed to a safe, inclusive, respectful College and University.

All members of the Griffith community have a right to feel welcome and safe. It’s everyone’s responsibility to ensure equity and inclusion are part of our daily work and study environment. We provide a range of programs and resources to promote campus communities that are free from harassment, bullying, discrimination or other behaviours that impact negatively on others.

Technology and Cybersafety

Our use of technology and online environments is increasing, and with it, the potential to experience unsafe behaviours such an technology-based abuse and cyber-bullying.

The e-Safety Commissioner provides a range of information and resources to assist young people, educators, parents, women and seniors to both stay safe online and understand your digital reputation.
