COVID-19 (coronavirus): Latest advice for the Bond community.

General Misconduct & Unwanted Behaviour Reporting

The BondCare Student Safety and Wellbeing Reporting/Referral System helps identify students whose wellbeing may be at risk or who many need additional academic support. We aim to provide timely and appropriate support to our students, and provide access to the resources and services they need to succeed and thrive as students.

This report is for students, staff, or members of the public to notify the University of general misconduct or unwanted behaviour.

For reports of possible academic integrity issues, please contact the SASQ team in the Faculty of enrolment.

Submit a report

This report is for students, staff, or members of the public to provide feedback, make student-related complaints and report misconduct, unwanted behaviour and inappropriate behaviour.

Additional information and support services

  • Unwanted behaviour: behaviour that you do not want or welcome, or which continues when you have asked someone to stop.
  • Inappropriate behaviour: behaviour that does not suit the situation; it may seem rude, bizarre or unreasonable.

These behaviours can happen online or face-to-face. They can affect your emotional health and study.

Forms of unwanted or inappropriate behaviour

What is unwanted or inappropriate for one person, may not be for another. It often becomes a problem when the person doing the unwanted or inappropriate behaviour refuses to stop.

Some forms of unwanted or inappropriate behaviour are very aggressive or intrusive, and threaten your safety, for instance:

  • Intimidation or threats
  • Bullying
  • Harassment
  • Sexual harassment and/or sexual assault
  • Physical or psychological violence
  • Racism

Other forms of unwanted or inappropriate behaviour are more subtle. It often becomes a problem when the person doing the unwanted or inappropriate behaviour refuses to stop.

Some examples are:

  • Sending repeated emails to another student or staff
  • Asking you a lot of personal questions
  • You feel like the other person ignores you, or talks over you
  • You believe the other person is gossiping or saying bad things about you to others.

You can also be affected if you see unwanted or inappropriate behaviour happening, and you don't know what you can do about it. Bystanders can experience distress or find their studies affected because of, for example, bullying in a group.

Bond University will review the details and activate a coordinated response to support the student. Students identified as requiring support will be offered the opportunity to engage with staff and support services to discuss their support needs. If you provide contact details, we will contact you about your concerns to discuss what can happen next.

If your report is about concerns for another person, we may contact that person.

If you need to follow-up regarding the status of a report submission, or if you have additional information or a change in level or concerns, contact us directly at [email protected]. Bond University may need to request additional information for clarification.
