School of BEES Equity and Diversity

The School of Biological, Earth and Environmental Sciences aims to provide a safe, supportive and welcoming environment for all staff and students regardless of their race, sex, age, religion, disability, sexual orientation or gender identification. As such, the School strongly supports UNSW's Equity and Diversity Policy in regard to these matters.

Through the Student Services Office, we coordinate special provisions for SEADU students. The liaison person for SEADU students in the School is Halley Durrant, Student Advisor (Biosciences Student Office).

 We believe that Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex and Queer (Questioning) students and staff ought to be able to enjoy their time with us without experiencing any sense of alienation or ill-treatment at the hands of either fellow staff or students in the University.

The ALLY@UNSW Network is a lighthouse program that aims to ensure UNSW is a safe, welcoming place for all students and staff who identify as LGBTIQ. The ALLY training program aims to make UNSW a great place for everybody by reducing barriers of fear and ignorance that lead to prejudice and discrimination.

The School of Biological, Earth and Environmental Sciences ALLY@UNSW contact and liaison person for LGBTIQ students or staff is Carolyn Etter (Faculty of Science Student Centre Manager).
