Meet our champions

Members of our School community discuss how they are actively promoting respect, helping people to get informed, and empowering others to step in.

‘Making a Choice’ refers to the decisions we make every day, at university or in our personal lives, that impact other people.

It is the choice we make to treat others with respect, stepping in when we see something that doesn’t look right, and having the courage to report incidents.
