Respect at USC

Respect at USC is an online module designed to create a shared understanding of what it means to be a respectful member of the USC community and contribute to the respectful, safe and inclusive learning and working environment for all students, staff and visitors.

The module is part of USC's ongoing commitment to University Australia's Respect. Now. Always. campaign to promote a diverse and inclusive campus culture.

All new students are required to complete the Respect at USC module in their first teaching period. You'll notice a hold on your account in USC Central and you won’t be able to access your final grades or unofficial transcript until you successfully complete the module. Find out more at pre-study modules.

You can access Respect at USC via Canvas 24 hours after you enrol in your courses. To progress through the module, you must engage with all the content and complete the embedded quizzes. Once you complete the module, there is an End of Module quiz. After you complete the module and achieve a score of 80% or higher in the End of Module quiz, the hold on your USC Central account should be automatically removed within a few the hours.

In the Respect at USC module, you will learn about:

  • your rights and responsibilities
  • how to identify problem behaviour and misconduct
  • maintaining respectful relationships
  • how to be an active bystander
  • safer alcohol consumption



Modules moved from Blackboard to Canvas

From May 2022, the Academic Integrity and Respect at USC modules will move from Blackboard to Canvas. You are still able to check what modules you need to complete via USC Central.
