Risk management at RMIT
Get to know the different types of risks
It’s important that you understand and consider the different types of risk RMIT could face to protect yourself, and our community, against potential negative impacts. All risks RMIT could impact RMIT as a whole, its brand, reputation and most importantly our people so we all need to do our bit in ensuring risks are identified quickly in order for us to keep on top of and manage our risks effectively.
Some risks and consequences you could experience at RMIT include:
Plagiarism and cheating
The penalties for breaching academic integrity include charges of academic misconduct, cancellation of results and expulsion resulting in the cancellation of your program. Find more information about Academic Integrity to make sure you know the rules and where to get support.
Concerning, threatening or inappropriate behaviour
At RMIT, we are committed to providing a respectful and safe place to study and work. Go to Safer Community to learn more about threatening or inappropriate behaviour and which support options are available.
Cyber security risks
All students at RMIT have a responsibility to know and understand what is required of them to protect RMIT data, systems and personal information. Go to the Cyber Safety Sharepoint to learn more about how to stay safe online.
Research lab faults
Research lab refrigerators can store up to 4 years’ worth of research, and all it takes is one electrical fault or power outage to ruin it all.
Spotted a risk? Here’s what to do
Please reach out to your tutor, lecturer or course coordinator to discuss potential risks to RMIT as you come across them so that we can all work together to successfully manage them.
