Sexual assault or harassment is never okay.
Bond University and the Bond University Student Association (BUSA) are jointly committed to a healthy culture of respect and responsibility that provides for a safe and supportive campus for everyone.
Bond University has a zero-tolerance approach to sexual assault, harassment and violence. The Student Support Strategy outlines what Bond University has actioned and what actions are being pursued to ensure the safety of every student.
Bond has specialist staff trained in responding to serious incidents and providing the appropriate support and privacy to victims of harassment and cooperates with Queensland Police by assisting with enquiries and investigations.
REPORTING AN INCIDENT OF SEXUAL MISCONDUCT
You are encouraged to report any incidents of sexual violence and harassment. Whether you are a victim, bystander or a support person; if you wish to report an incident now, we encourage you to make use of our updated BondCare reporting form. This form will be directed to a confidential email address for further action.
Response to sexual misconduct
Bond University takes very seriously its responsibility to protect students and staff from sexual assault, interpersonal and sexual harassment and violence. Read more about making a report, getting support for your physical and emotional well being and the measures taken against perpetrators.
Our First Responders are staff members who have undertaken specialist training in assisting those who may have been a victim of sexual assault or harassment. There are First Responders in place throughout Bond University to support you and guide you toward further options for reporting and seeking care.
