International House is committed to providing a safe and inclusive environment, where difference is valued and the wellbeing of all residents is paramount.
At the core of our pastoral care program are our 16 residential tutors who live among the students and who get to know the students on their floors very well. They are there to support students, offer advice and act as mentors. Four senior students trained as Residential Assistants complement the program, as does an on-call counsellor whose services are free and confidential.
Three trained Fair Treatment Advisors, usually tutors, are appointed to deal with any possible matters related to harassment and bullying. For more information on our Fair Treatment policy and processes, please refer to the summary of Melbourne Residential Colleges Discrimination, Sexual Harassment and Bullying Policy and Procedures.
