Our Statement of Commitment reinforces RMIT's undertaking to be a child safe institution; and to focus on the safety and protection of children and young people under the age of 18 across our diverse operations.
RMIT University has students under the age of 18, provides child care services to children from three months to five years of age, hosts visiting children and conducts research with children and young people. As such, RMIT recognises its responsibility and is committed to child safety, protecting children from harm and being a child safe organisation.
RMIT is committed to:
RMIT supports and respect all children, as well as our staff and volunteers. All children, regardless of their gender, race, religious beliefs, age, disability, sexual orientation, or family or social background have equal rights to protection from abuse, harm or maltreatment.
Everyone working or studying at RMIT is responsible for the care and protection of the children within our care and reporting information about suspected child abuse or harm of children and young people. The RMIT community is aware of the Victorian Government’s mandatory reporting obligations and associated legislation. Child protection is a shared responsibility between RMIT, all employees, students, workers, contractors, associates and members of the RMIT community.
If you believe a child or young person is at immediate risk of abuse or harm call Campus Security on tel. 9925 3333 or Emergency 000.
