Let's talk about diversity

Supporting staff with a disability

UniSC is committed to creating an inclusive environment that facilitates equitable access and full participation in employment and education. Staff who have a temporary or permanent disability are encouraged to discuss any issues with their supervisor in the first instance so that the necessary supports can be established. UniSC welcomes applications from prospective staff with disabilities and will implement reasonable adjustments to enable equitable access and participation in the recruitment process.
