In light of recent events surrounding the Ethnocultural Space, the USU recognizes its obligations to actively promote an environment free from discrimination. In particular, the USU recognises its obligation to work actively to end discrimination against students who are from ethnocultural backgrounds, who have suffered or continue to suffer under racial oppression.
The Ethnocultural Space is a safe and autonomous space for students who identify as being from an ethnic minority and believe they have suffered or continue to suffer from systemic racial oppression.
Importantly, we do not condone members of the campus community using the space without considering the purpose as being rooted in providing an area free from racial discrimination.
If anyone is feeling distressed by what has happened and is in need of support, please contact the University Mental Health line on 1800 011 511 or Lifeline on 13 11 14.
