This principle brings together RMIT’s identity as an urban, open and inclusive institution and extends on commitments we have already made in policy. RMIT’s Strategy acknowledges the importance of diversity within our community, the value it brings to the University, and the positive impact of diversity on belonging and well-being.
RMIT aspires to go beyond mandatory compliance on matters of diversity to build a strong community of diverse learners and staff: “We are better for our diversity, both students and staff. When we listen to those who are different to us, or challenge us, we grow stronger together. When we feel like we belong, we can achieve so much more. We respect each other, we embrace our differences and we build a sense of belonging in our team and beyond”.
