Investigation into behaviour of staff, students and members of the public on campus on 11 March 2015


26 May 2015

The University of Sydney today reported on the outcome of its further investigations into the conduct of individuals during the incident at the University on March 11, 2015.

The University had previously identified that the conduct of various individuals (staff, students, contractors, affiliates and members of the public) fell short of the standards required by the University.

Those individuals were the subject of confidential investigations, whereby they were asked to respond to the University's concerns about their behaviour.

A number of members of the University community and the public were found to have engaged in unsatisfactory conduct, as a result of which disciplinary action, including counselling, warning and suspension of access rights to the University grounds have been imposed.

University disciplinary processes are still underway in relation to five students (both protestors and members of the audience).

The University will not comment on the outcomes for any individual due to the confidentiality of the investigation process, and privacy rights of those individuals. It does not propose to make any further statement in relation to this incident.
