Ethical bystanders are everyday people that are willing to say something when they see something disrespectful. A small intervention can make a big difference to not only the people involved but the campus community more broadly.

Share your experiences of these everyday 'Random Acts of Respect' through photos, images, articles or artwork! Submissions may be published in a special edition of the student magazine, Semper Floreat. 

Please upload your submission in either .pdf or .docx format in the following link.

Feel free to submit anonymously or you can share your name, include photos, images or artwork to supplement your submission. Submissions close Friday 10 September 2021 at 8pm. Recommended word count 100-250 words.

When: submission close Friday 10 September

What: share your experience of 'Random Acts of Respect' through photos, images, articles or artwork in PDF or Word file
