How to disclose sexual misconduct

You can contact the Respectful Relationships Unit to disclose an incidence of sexual misconduct at ANU.

Disclosing an incidence of sexual assault or sexual harassment at ANU is not the same as reporting. By disclosing to the Respectful Relationships Unit, you will be given accurate information about where to go for help care and support.

To disclose, you can contact the Respectful Relationships Unit by email.

If you don't want to be identified, you can create a disposable email address exclusively for this purpose by following the instructions offered by Google.

The Respectful Relationships Unit will deal with any information you provide in accordance with the University's Privacy Policy. The Respectful Relationships Unit will not share any information you provide with anyone else without your permission, unless your safety or the safety of others is at risk, you are under the age of 18, or you provide enough information about an ANU staff member who is believed to be responsible for sexual misconduct that they can be identified.

When disclosing to the Respectful Relationships Unit, you can include as much or as little information as you like. The important thing is that you can receive information about where to go for help.

You don't have to disclose to the Respectful Relationships Unit. You can choose to disclose to someone else that you trust and feel comfortable with. You can find more information on disclosing at Difference between disclosure and reporting.
