Safer community

Safer Community is a protective service for both students and staff. Learn more about the support available for threatening or inappropriate behaviour.

At RMIT, we are committed to providing a respectful and safe place to study and work. Safer Community is RMIT's dedicated service for all students and staff to report unwanted or threatening behaviour. 

This includes bullying, sexual harassment, assault, and family/relationship violence, as well as other concerning or inappropriate behaviours.  

If you are feeling unsafe about threatening or unwanted behaviour, you can talk to us about your concerns and discuss options – even if the behaviour happened off campus. 

Students and staff are able to remain anonymous when reporting concerns.

When you contact Safer Community, we will: 

  • listen
  • try to understand what’s important to you
  • explain and explore options - you decide which is most appropriate
  • always consider your well-being
  • discuss with you if we need to take steps to ensure the safety of our community

Report to Safer Community

If you have experienced threatening or concerning behaviour or you are worried about someone in our community, Safer Community can help.
