Diversity Week celebrates our commitment to creating an inclusive and connected university community that embraces our diversity on campus.
This year Diversity Week and Respect Week coincide, complementing each other perfectly with a stimulating program presenting ideas and activities to help us study and work together, and grow as a safe and inclusive scholarly community, and participate in an open and respectful society.
Diversity Week 2018 also coincides with the United Nations Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination and Harmony Day on 21 March 2018.
The theme for Diversity Week 2018 is Proud to Belong.

Get involved in pride in sport week
Monday 9 April – Friday 15 April
Pride in Sport Week at the University celebrates and raises awareness of the need for diversity and inclusion of all members of the University community in sporting, health and fitness settings.
Everyone in the University community is invited to participate, compete and get fit in a safe and supportive environment.
Be a positive part of the Melbourne Experience. Join us and celebrate our diversity.
Speak Up. Speak Out.
Respect Week at the University of Melbourne celebrates our commitment to a safe, inclusive, connected and respectful University community that embraces diversity and is free from behaviours that place people at risk of harm.
Respect Week provides the opportunity to remind our University community that all forms of assault, harassment, discrimination and bullying are always unacceptable, and that we should speak up for ourselves, and for others when we see or hear something we think is not ok.
Respect Week promotes the services available for students and staff who may need help and support.
Respect Week activities include a fascinating range of lectures, workshops and social events that, in all, will encourage all members of the University community to contribute to a respectful living, learning and working community.
