Diversity and Inclusion at ARC


The Astrophysics Research Centre (ARC) at the University of KwaZulu-Natal, is a welcoming, inclusive and safe space for everyone, regardless of gender, race, nationality, religion, sexual orientation or disability. Staff and students can study, work and live in a positive working environment that is free from bullying, harassment, discrimination, hate, and sexual misconduct.

As part of our continuing efforts to address these issues, we have our code of conduct listed below which would be mandatory for each new member of ARC to sign and adhere to. Anyone who experiences or witnesses an incident will be taken seriously and will be supported.

Please be aware that the D&I support at ARC is complementary to the existing Diversity Management resources at UKZN.

Code of Conduct

ARC believes that each individual in our organisation brings with them a diverse set of perspectives, work and life experiences that we, as ARC, are committed to including in the everyday workings of the centre. The centre is currently in the process of developing its own code of conduct; which, will be displayed here upon completion. This code of conduct will be inline with those of the institutions listed below and the UKZN code of conduct.
