Equity, Diversity and Inclusion

The School of Materials Science and Engineering aims to provide a safe, supportive and welcoming environment for all students regardless of their race, sex, age, religion, disability, sexual orientation or gender identification. As such, the School strongly supports UNSW's Equity and Diversity Policy in regard to these matters.

The School has established an Equity and Opportunity Committee to oversee these issues and to ensure that we provide a comfortable and safe educational environment for all.

We believe that Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex and Questioning students ought to be able to enjoy their time with us without experiencing any sense of alienation or ill-treatment at the hands of either staff or fellow students in the University.

The ALLY@UNSW network of trained staff and students aims to ensure that UNSW is a safe, welcoming place for all students and staff who identify as LGBTIQ. If you would like to contact any of the ALLIES, they will be happy to hear from you and provide confidential referral advice.
