ACKNOWLEDGEMENT OF COUNTRY
UMSU respectfully acknowledges the Traditional Owners of the lands on which we operate. We pay respect to Elders past, present and emerging, and extend that respect to all First Nations Australians. Sovereignty was never ceded.
ACCESS AND INCLUSION
UMSU has a long history of fostering a diverse and inclusive community of students, staff and visitors. UMSU provides support, advocacy and opportunities for creative and social pursuits for
all students enrolled at the University of Melbourne. UMSU’s commitment to access and inclusion is demonstrated through
a policy framework and the provision of resources to enable an environment that promotes inclusivity, thoughtfulness and safety.
UMSU is playing its part in the implementation of the University of Melbourne’s social distancing measures under public health guidelines and are moving its events online where possible.
We aim to foster a sense of community within our student body while we are physical distancing, to boost happiness, reduce stress and support one another when life can feel a little out of control. You may find other events of interest to you in our online events calendar:
If you feel unsafe, unprotected or upset by something during this online event, please bring this to the attention of the event host.
