Champion: Craig Smith

UNSW Medicine believes that Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Questioning and Intersex students and staff should be able to enjoy their time at UNSW and in our teaching facilities without experiencing any sense of alienation or ill-treatment at the hands of either fellow staff or students.

The Faculty is well represented in the membership of ALLY@UNSW. The ALLY training program aims to make UNSW a great place for everybody by reducing barriers of fear and ignorance that lead to prejudice and discrimination. A full directory of ALLY members is available online
