We have all been very shocked and saddened by the terrible mass shooting in New Zealand today. Although the situation is still unfolding it was clearly a deliberate, violent and deadly attack on the Muslim community in Christchurch, and by extension, on New Zealand society.
On behalf of the University, I would like to offer my deepest sympathies to our Muslim students and staff and those from New Zealand. I know you will have been deeply upset by this atrocity. Curtin is a proudly multicultural community and we abhor any acts of violence and extremism and share your grief.
Please remember the University is here to support you in any way we can. Counselling is available to anyone who needs support, and you can also reach out to Student Wellbeing or Assure, our employee assistance program provider. Contact details for these services are provided below:
