At UNSA, we believe that student clubs and societies are the beating heart of student life.
They’re a chance for you to make new friends and connections through shared interests, create communities and a sense of belonging on campus (and online!), learn new skills, discover new opportunities, and have fun doing the things that you’re truly passionate about.
In short: student clubs are the best part of being a student.
To ensure that all student clubs are welcoming and inclusive, and are run in the best interests of their members, we require that all UNSA-affiliated clubs and societies comply with the following Code of Conduct.
Clubs and their members must act to be inclusive, and must treat everyone equitably, consistently, and appropriately.
Clubs and their members must behave and communicate in a manner that does not offend, degrade, or humiliate.
Clubs and their members must show consideration for the property of the University, UNSA, and each other.
Clubs must not encourage or tolerate bigoted, hateful, or discriminatory behaviour. Discrimination on the grounds of race, colour, sex, sexual orientation, age, physical or mental disability, marital status, family or carer’s responsibilities, pregnancy, religion, political opinion, national extraction, or social origin will not be tolerated.
Clubs must not tolerate drunk and disorderly behaviour that interrupts its events or otherwise adversely affects their members or other people. Any member found to be contravening this clause will be asked to leave the event, and the club’s Executive Committee may resolve to suspend or expel a member from the club.
Clubs must always be student-governed and student-led. Clubs should avoid undue influence from external (that is, non-student) bodies, groups and organisations.
In addition to their members, clubs must also act in the best interests of UNSA and the University. Your actions reflect as much on us as they do on you. Be a good human.
UNSA has a zero-tolerance policy for bullying. Clubs should seek to do no harm through their actions, and to not abuse their members’ trust. Club members must not profit financially (nor acquire personal assets, excluding merchandise) through a club’s events and activities, or from other members.
Clubs and their members must abide by the University’s Code of Conduct, which supersedes all UNSA policies and guidelines.
