Behaviour and Codes

All members of the Lincoln University whānau are entitled to learn, study, work and participate in all aspects of university life in an environment of safety, inclusiveness, and respect.

We choose a culture of manaakitaka, where we lift the mana of all people by embracing and supporting each other as a diverse community. 

There are many ways that Lincoln University, LUSA and students work together to promote a safe, inclusive and respectful learning environment. Examples are: 

  • Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) working group 
    A group of LU and LUSA representatives working together to raise awareness and recommend effective development and establishment of best practice initiatives across the university. 
  • Respectfully Lincoln – Sexual Harm Prevention Programme 
    This is a compulsory education and leadership workshop for all new students focused on reducing sexual harm. The workshops are led by students and the programme was co-created by staff and students.
  • Student Charter
    The Student Charter was jointly developed to establish a formal and enduring partnership between students, staff and the Lincoln University Students’ Association (LUSA). Students are encouraged to read it to know what to expect of the University and LUSA, and understand what is expected of them, as a student.

Raise a concern

If you have a concern, complaint or grievance, there is a process to give students a voice.
