Study Environment Council

The council monitors issues relating to the requirements of the Discrimination Act to work actively as an education provider and as the accountable authority for education in relation to the Work Environment Act.

The council also participates as a referral body for, for example, revised routines, action plans, and the design of student surveys that, for example, concern issues of discrimination, as well as responds to external requests for comment.
